Where are the aficionados of our developing English lexicon? Which lexicographers differentiate between the good, the bad, and the unacceptable, serving the world of neologisms as traffic cops, judges, scholars, and coaches. Where, oh where, are the resources to help guide neology and ensure its legitimacy?
Welcome the ENS’s compilation of this important guild -- columnists, authors, linguists, bloggers, and others who give word coinage the respect, veneration, and enjoyment it deserves. If the source in the table below is Internet-based, click on the name to go there (otherwise, write or call per info given). They are shown in alphabetical order, rated ny the ENS membership from 5 (best) to 1 (least), from the standpoint of neology.
