In this episode, Amy teases out a home-town industry that turned into a showbiz obstacle with “heckle” and Ryan uncovers the lordly history of the lowly “loaf”.

Lexitecture is a podcast about words. In each episode, a Canadian (Ryan) and a Scot (Amy) each present their current favourite word and talk about its origins, current use, and try to puzzle out how it may have gone from A to B. If you love thinking and talking about words, word origins, or just random bits of head-scratching language trivia, this may be the show for you!

    Hi May and Ryan.
    Just listened to ep 6 again ( there’s so much interesting stuff in you podcasts that I have to return a few times to soak it all up ) and noted that you seemed not to know the connection between ‘loaf’ and ‘head’ i.e. ‘use your loaf’ it’s Cockney rhyming slang. ‘Loaf of bread = head’

    Thanks for the entertaining and interesting podcast.
