In this episode, Amy talks silliness with “goose” and Ryan trembles at the power of the powerful with “danger“.

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!

    I must admit that I was not familiar with Amy’s reference to some of the more obscure and intimate goose-related terms. But her mention started a chain of recollections that led me to a related limerick:
    A gentleman late of Calcutta
    was overheard one day to mutter,
    “If her Bartholin glands
    Won’t respond to my hands,
    I shall certainly have to use butter”
