A Glossary for the Time

A collaborative compendium of words to diagnose, describe, expand, heal, inform, and inspire.

A Glossary for the Time is an animated micro-series that presents – in catalogue format—intriguing, uncommon, though still relevant words—then uses them in an example sentence that speaks to the experience of this wild year.

At less than a minute each, the Glossary is the antithesis of “buzz words.”  It functions to remind us that spoken English is vast and democratic. Collaborating with writers and artists from around the US, the intent is to foster an expansion of both language and insight.
