Amelia D'Screte teaches us about where words come from.
On this weeks episode of Word Salad, we are learning about the language of flowers. Rach and Tess learn there's plenty of room for miscommunication through your bouquets.
Amelia runs us through Trademarks and Genericism, from velcro to bubblewrap, what are we even allowed to say?
Proverbs, the ol' sayings we love to use. Amelia brings in some of her faves, and Rachel and Tess try to figure out what they mean.
This week we're talking about words to do with politics, specifically, filibustering. Seems topical.
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.
Ahhh, tmesis. This one comes with a content warning as we delve into the world of swearing-in-the-middle-of-words. Phew!
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.
