Because Language

Because Language podcast header written as "Becasue Langauge"

Because Language is a show about what’s going on in linguistics, the science of language, with linguists Daniel Midgley and Hedvig Skirgård and smart person Ben Ainslie. They tackle topics like language change, language and society, language technology, and their popular feature, Words of the Week. Word nerds, this one’s for you.

A chat with Dr Kelly Wright, who’s been working on… well, really a lot. Kelly is at the juncture of a lot of areas we’re keen on. Oxford’s effort to document African-American English? She’s been there. Doing lexicography with the American Dialect Society? She’s on it. The LSA’s social media committee? She… was on it. And she’s been looking into a new unexplored area: people’s ideas about their own language knowledge. But it’s not all easy. And Kelly is here to tell us about her view of linguistics… from the struggle pile.
