Amelia D'Screte teaches us about where words come from.
Amelia is making sounds, words that sound like sounds or words that describe sounds. But strictly not onomatopoeia. Does anyone know how to pronouce psithurism?
We have to start with a content warning, as Amelia brings us the scoop on minced oaths. Flipping heck.
Amelia explains rebracketing to us. What does it mean? Why is a hamburger called a hamburger if it doesn't have any ham in it? It's all too confusing.
Amelia's come to us with a disclaimer so be warned. Today's word is jazz, while also touching on jizz. Nice.
This week Amelia's giving us a fast but informative lesson on the months of the year. Where did the names come from? Do we really need 12 of them? ...what even is time? Yikes.
Amelia's joining us this week with a very topical word. Today we're talking Quarantine.
We've got another lesson with Amelia this week, learning the origins of the word dunce. Tune in so you can impress your friends with some fruity new words.
Another spread of Word Salad to get you through the weeks. Amelia joins us with chiaroscuro, impasto, ekphrasis and gestalt. Tune in to find out what on earth we're talking about.
Sassigassity, a term coined by Dickens in one of his short stories. Amelia brings us the backstory, meaning and the word used in a sentence. Definitely going straight in our vocabulary.
Amelia brings us her first Word Salad, cataract. Not only an eye diesease but also a waterfall? Amelia gives us the low down on its origin, meanings and mythical stories.
