Sarah Lang profiled in the Edmonton Journal

Sarah Lang, author of The Work of Days, talks about her book, her research on airports and her battles with the Oxford English dictionary in the Edmonton Journal on Thursday, September 27, the date of her Edmonton launch at Greenwoods' Bookshoppe.

"I once wrote a paper on the history of the word 'meat,' " explains Lang, who has a PhD in English, "and I disagreed with the OED."

It turns out the editors were in agreement with Lang's exhaustive historical analysis, and had already corrected their error by the time she got in touch with them.
