Two big news items this time around!

The first is that we’d like to send out a HUGE thank you to our very first ever Patreon sponsor! Scott has signed on to help us cover the cost of what we do here at Lexitecture, and we are humbly grateful to him for that! If supporting the stuff we do around here sounds like something you might be interested in, you can find us at

The second bit of exciting news is that we are going to be attending the Sound Education podcasting conference happening next month at Harvard. Both Ryan and Amy will be sitting on a “podcasting about language and linguistics” panel featuring folks from Grammar Girl, The Endless Knot, The World in Words and The History of English Podcast. Our panel is in the afternoon on Friday, November 2, and the conference runs the 2-3.

In this episode, Amy looks at hard-of-hearing irrationality with “surd” and Ryan looks forward with “provide“.

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!
