Jesse Sheidlower is a well-educated writer, scholar, and Oxford English Dictionary editor living in New York City. He has written an entire book dedicated to the word fuck and today on Book Talk he helps us better understand how words are born, defined, and die in the English language.

I also look at how Scrabble missed its chance at mobile-gaming domination and some of America’s new, official words of 2012.
