Corbett's "Autotonsorialist" Featured on Jeopardy

A word that Professor of the Practice Christopher Corbett invented was a clue on the March 9, 2018 episode of Jeopardy. The word was autotonsorialist--one who cuts his own hair or looks as if he cuts his own hair. Corbett notes that this was included in a book by Jack Hitt, entitled, In a Word, an anthology of invented words. Congratulations Professor Corbett on this impressive achievement; it is incredible to see our English Department faculty making such impacts in the field and on our cultural imagination at large.
