When the G & C Merriam Company of Massachusetts published the third edition of Webster’s Dictionary in 1961, little did they realize that they would start “America’s greatest language controversy”. All over a few words that had been classified as slang. Tonight on Inquiry, we speak with DAVID SKINNER, editor, writer and journalist about his wild and entertaining history THE STORY OF AIN’T: AMERICA, ITS LANGUAGE, AND THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL DICTIONARY EVER PUBLISHED.
