A weekly show about linguistics, the science of language

Why do we love some accents and hate others? Why do we talk differently in different situations? Does learning a new language really teach you to think differently?
In this podcast, I examine the eccentricities of language and identity; how the way we talk connects to who we are.
A PODCAST ABOUT LANGUAGE
BY HELEN ZALTZMAN
A Way with Words is an upbeat and lively hour-long public radio show and podcast about language examined through history, culture, and family. Each week, author/journalist Martha Barnette and lexicographer/linguist Grant Barrett talk with callers about slang, old sayings, new words, grammar, word origins, regional dialects, family expressions, and speaking and writing well. They settle disputes, play word quizzes, and discuss language news and controversies. The show, on the air since 1998, is heard weekly by more than a half-million listeners over the air across the United States and around the world by podcast. The show is produced by Wayword, Inc., a small independent nonprofit unaffiliated with any station or network.
