Dear fellow word nerds,
You may have noticed that I haven’t posted much original content lately. I am currently participating in National Novel Writing Month and that has been eating up most of my writing energy. You can expect more etymology posts from me come December.
To my fellow word nerds,
If you listen to podcasts, A Way With Words is definitely one of my faves and I recommend it to anyone who loves learning word origins and new words.
A Way with Words is a fun and funny radio show and podcast about language. Co-hosts Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett talk with callers from around the world about linguistics, slang, new words, jokes, riddles, word games, grammar, old sayings, word origins, regional dialects, family expressions, books, literature, folklore, and speaking and writing well. Email your language questions for the show to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or call with your questions toll-free *any* time in the U.S. and Canada at (877) 929-9673. From anywhere in the world: +1 (619) 800-4443. Hear all past shows for free: http://waywordradio.org/. Also on Twitter at http://twitter.com/wayword.
