While people know that you use "the dictionary" to find out what words mean, rather few know how dictionaries make their decisions. Indeed, the very idea of "the dictionary"--as if there is a single one, which perfectly reflects the reality of language--exemplifies this problem. In reality, dictionaries are of course written by humans, and reflect the biases of their editors and of their times, as well as the general difficulty of describing anything in concise yet accurate detail. And different dictionaries have different emphases and different purposes. This talk will discuss how we got to this point, showing that even simple concrete nouns such as "door" or "soup" cannot be accurately defined, and that it is hopeless to look for comprehensive treatment of abstract concepts such as "freedom", "love", "art", or "beauty".Despite the widespread belief that dictionaries reveal the absolute truth about the meanings of words, we will see that the best they can do is be a useful general guide. This is particularly problematic as courts turn to dictionaries to try to understand what, say, "on" meant in the mid-19th century. We will also examine how modern computational techniques can help us answer such questions in more detail.Jesse Shlower, the past president of the American Dialect Society, was the Editor at Large of the Oxford English Dictionary. He has a particular interest in slang and offensive language. He currently teaches in the Writing Program at Columbia University.Refreshments following.

Please join us Thursday, May 30th from 5-6pm for an evening of discussion on the late Matt Phillips (1927–2017) the master of monotype printing, with special guest speaker Susannah Hays, PhD. As a monotype releases itself from plate to paper, so too is the artist's analogue reflection. How the monotype provided the perfect channel for keeping artist Matt Phillips freely in tune with the natural world will be illuminated when looking closely at the poetic work he created between 1956 and 2016. Artist and educator Susannah Hays met Matt Phillips in the late 1980s. Married from 1991-1997, they continued a meaningful friendship until his passing in 2017. She was responsible for conserving his 1960s and '70s monotypes, until her fine are practice emerged in 1998. Whether monotype or photogram, work on paper or artist book their enduring friendship was sustained by intangible affinities such as grace and spirit. This evening is sponsored by Arthur L. Frank, MD, PhD, professor and chair emeritus of the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health at the Dornsife School of Public Health, and his wife Joanne B. Frank, who generously funded the exhibition Matt Phillips: Inspired.Image: SusannahRSVP.For more information on the exhibition click here. by Matt Phillips, 1994, monotype.
