A nice video series initiated by The Lexicography Society at Columbia University.

Each video takes a word and films someone talking about it – what the word means to them. The words covered so far are “swish”, “infinite”, “mu”, “sanguine”, “beautility”, “stop”, “saudade”, “discombobulated”, “doughty”, “meditate” and “escalate”.

The prime mover, Yin Yin Lu, has recently transferred to Lincoln College, Oxford, and is looking for a video producer so she can continue the series over there. She hopes to resume filming this summer.
