Description or summary of the audiobook: The Meaning of Everything is a scintillating account of the creation of the greatest monument ever erected to a living language, the Oxford English Dictionary. Simon Winchester's supple, vigorous prose illuminates this dauntingly ambitious project: a seventy-year odyssey to create the grandfather of all word-books. A truly wonderful celebration of the English language. This recording is unabridged.
