David Astle: How to Invent a Word

Session Info:

Looks at great word-inventors in the past and their secrets; the ‘rules’ of word making; the flops and the secrets to reach the dictionary, after my own success with phubbing, now in the Oxford & many other dictionaries. This same session can tie in a fun brainstorming phase where students create and select words, staging a mini-tournament to reach a final shortlist.
