Amelia D'Screte teaches us about where words come from.
Linguistic determinism, what a concept. Amelia helps Rach and Tess wrap their heads around what meaning our words have in relation to our world. No light topics around here.
This week on Word Salad we're talking about Homophonic Translation, Anguish Languish, and Phono-Semantic Matching. Don't know what these are? Neither do we, but lucky for us, Amelia's here to tell us all about it.
The Great Vowel Change, what is this? Amelia's here to run us through how we got from one vowel sound to another.
Spoonerisms are the hot topic on this weeks episode of Word Salad. Amelia runs us through how this phenomenon came to be.
Ooohh err Duckie! Today we're talking about 'Polari' on 'Word Salad', the almost-lost language spoken by gay men in the UK before homosexual law reform in the 1960s. Tune in to find out more!
On this weeks episode of Word Salad, we're getting the TLDR on acronyms. Where did they come from? and what do they mean? Amelia tells all.
This week, Amelia teaches Rachel and Tess about words that originated from Hindu or Urdu. We're talking punch, cushy, bungalow and plenty more.
Do you know any birds by their first names? Amelia does and thankfully she's here to share them with us.
You know when one word has two meanings and those two meanings oppose each other? Did you know there's a word for that? Amelia's talking contronym's, aka the Janus word or an auto-antonym.
Amelia joins us with the history of the logy, often confused with the ology.
