Grant Barrett is co-host of the language-related public radio show A Way with Words, independently produced in and distributed from San Diego and broadcast each week to hundreds of thousands of listeners in the United States, Canada, and around the world.
He is also an American lexicographer and dictionary editor specializing in slang and new words. He compiled and edited the Official Dictionary of Unofficial English (2006, McGraw-Hill) and the Oxford Dictionary of American Political Slang (2004, Oxford University Press), and maintains the prize-winning online Double-Tongued Dictionary which tracks slang, jargon, and neologisms from the fringes of English. He is also a co-founder of Wordnik, an online dictionary.

He has contributed to numerous language reference works and has written about it for such newspapers as the Washington Post and the New York Times. He serves as vice president of the American Dialect Society, an academic organization devoted since 1889 to the study of English in North America. He has been the chair of its New Words Committee, has edited the “Among the New Words” column of the society’s journal American Speech, has served as a member of the journal’s editorial review board, and still helps organize the society’s annual “word of the year” vote.

Formerly, Grant was the engagement editor for voiceofsandiego.org, an innovative nonprofit online-only newspaper. He was responsible for increasing online and offline awareness of its content and bringing community commentary, opinion and insight into its pages.

Grant holds a degree in French from Columbia University and has studied at the Université Paris Diderot. Though born and raised in Missouri, Grant has lived at length in New York City, Paris, and the U.S. Virgin Islands and now lives in sunny California with his wife — a linguist/lexicographer — and their young son.
