By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0) WordNik announced $8M in Series C funding today. The startup formerly named Alphabeticall seeks to provide information about all English words, and to give you a place where you can make your own opinions about words known.

WordNik was founded by lexicographer Erin McKean.

Erin speaks at conferences and has a Wikipedia page, where we learned she writes about dresses in her blog A Dress A Day and about lexicography at Dictionary Evangelist. Follow her on Twitter at @emckean.
