Chicago Ideas Week: What Would Shakespeare Tweet?
William Shakespeare

Long before we were hashtagging, word-mashing and cranking out slang too fast to keep up with, Shakespeare was the original word inventor, and churned out more than 1,700 English words back in the 16th and 17th centuries. At this Chicago Ideas Week conversation, word-nerd experts will talk about the ongoing tech driven language revolution. Panelists include Kory Stamper, the woman who chooses what words to add to Merriam-Webster; Deborah Fallows, who will talk about dreaming in Chinese; and Dana Suskind, who will discuss the effect of 30 million words.
