Writers, “grammar Nazis,” and bookworms celebrate Dictionary Day every October 16. It also happens to be the birthday of the most popular lexicographer of our times, Noah Webster. Even with the takeover of e-books affecting the paperback and hardbound industries, the Webster Dictionary remains one of the most ubiquitous and authoritative reference materials in America.

Nearly all academic papers, encyclopedias, and social media websites refer to the Webster’s Dictionary for the official meaning of new terms. It also has a formidable online presence with encyclopedias like Britannica and Wikipedia that provide a firmer grasp of scientific terms and niche expressions. Webster’s also gets referral clicks from English language tutorial sites and Twitter, one of the most slang-heavy social media platforms.

How to Celebrate Dictionary DayStudents countrywide try to learn at least five new English words a day to prepare for the LSATs. You can celebrate Dictionary Day by beating them—learn six or seven, and look deeper into the origins of a word or study its international roots. For example, the word “vocabulary” has roots in ancient Latin, with “voc” appearing in words like vocal, convocation, and evocative to signal people “getting across a point.”

You can celebrate the day by appreciating the beauty of language and becoming more articulate. Find eloquent friends who can express themselves in intelligent conversations, and you will be well on your way to celebrating the essence of #DictionaryDay
