Beautiful People: Amanda Montell, Pop Linguist and Author

Amanda Montell is a pop linguist and a writer who lives in Los Angeles, and if her name looks familiar, staff jobs at Byrdie and WhoWhatWear (where she has profiled talent including Olivia Munn and Chloë Grace Moretz) might have helped. Written or verbal, “words,” Montell tells us, “are everything.” So it’s no wonder that after a lifetime of interest in the function of language and the sound of words themselves, she got to writing about words more deeply, diving into sociolinguistics and why we speak and use language the way we do.
