This, friends, is a very special episode! Not only is it the first time that Ryan and Amy have been able to record an episode in the same room, but there’s a special guest here as well! Kevin Stroud (of the History of English Podcast) sat on the Language Podcasting panel with us (and Mark from The Endless Knot, Mignon Fogarty – Grammar Girl – and Patrick Cox from The World in Words) and presented his own talk at the Sound Education conference in Boston. He was gracious enough to come along and bring a word of his own to chat about this episode.
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!
