Talk the Talk is RTRFM’s weekly show about linguistics, the science of language.
Linguists Daniel Midgley and Hedvig Skirgård and smart person Ben Ainslie tackle language change, language tech, new words, society, minority languages, language and the mind, and much more.
Daniel teaches linguistics at the University of Western Australia. Hedvig is a linguist at ANU studying Pacific languages. Ben teaches media studies to the next generation of Western Australia’s secondary school students. Together, they look at language in all its variety and splendour while listening to some great tunes.
Catch them on Tuesdays at 11am and check out their blog.
