Today on Tablet, Allan Metcalf on a new crowd-sourced dictionary
Today on Tablet, Allan Metcalf reports on a new dictionary of Jewish English words.
Benor’s Lexicon is a sturdy youngster, having made its appearance on the Internet only a couple of months ago. Its vocabulary is only 700-plus words at the moment (including over 200 not in any other Jewish English dictionary), but that’s more than the repertoire of any human barely 2 months old. And it’s growing rapidly, with a word or two added almost every day.
