In this episode, Amy appreciates the timeless nature of the word (and artifact) “book” and Ryan wonders what Shakespeare called Romeo before the word “character” was used.
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!
