Oi! In London

Another day, a new town, a new hat:  I’m now working from the London headquarters of The Economist, as the deputy Books & Arts editor. I help run the books coverage of The Economist in print and our online coverage of culture on the Prospero blog.

I continue writing my language column, the latest instalment of which was on various Word of the Year choices for 2015, and why "they" was a rather singular choice by the American Dialect Society. Find more of my columns at Prospero.

I was also deputy editor of The Economist‘s annual prediction-bonanza, The World in 2016. In my own contribution to World In, I took my best stab at the language trends to look for this year.
