Amelia D'Screte teaches us about where words come from.
Things are getting magical on Word Salad with Amelia. We're talking the origins of Abracadabra, Hocus Pocus, and Alakazam. Spooky.
Ever wondered why we don't pronounce the 'T' in 'mortgage'? Well wonder-no-more! Amelia's here to inform us on the French history of the word.

Amelia's got portmanteau on the brain this morning. We're covering all our favourites, and of course, gerrymandering.
We're diving straight into another rabbit hole with Amelia's guidance. This week talking about Onomatopoeia, Fernand de Saussure and Structuralism.
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.

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!
