A literary lunch with Susie Dent — Harrogate Informer


Date hour
Date(s) – October 20, 2022
12:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Our lunchtime speaker, Susie Dent, is an English lexicographer, etymologist and media personality. She is the resident word expert in Dictionary Corner on Chanel 4’s Countdown and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, has appeared on all word shows: 15 x 15, Word of Mouth, More or Less; and is a regular panelist on R4’s Wordaholics. Susie also writes a weekly column for the Radio Times, reviews for the Spectator and has 1,000,000 Twitter followers.

Her latest book – An Emotional Dictionary – is the book she always wanted to write! Whether it is the distress of a bad haircut (age-otori) or the craving for the food someone else is eating (groaking), the pleasure found in the happiness of others ( confelicity) or the shock of jumping into icy water (curglaff), there are real words to identify exactly what you’re feeling and Susie Dent, Queen of Countdown’s Dictionary Corner and lexicographer extraordinaire, is going to help you find them.
