Over this past week I found the most awesome thing ever! Roald Dahl is going to have his own Dictionary printed! How awesome is that!?
If you don’t want to read the article, here is the breakdown. To mark 100 years since Dahl’s birth on (September 13) Oxford University Press this month released The Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary, a comprehensive guide to the biffsquiggling — that’s puzzling — language of Dahl. The Dictionary explains around 8000 words and their meanings.
“In keeping with Roald Dahl’s spirit, we explain ordinary words in very unordinary ways.”
Did you know? They discovered that there were 300 new words ‘invented’ in the”BFG” by Roald Dahl, alone!
