Talk the Talk: Mailbag of Mallets

Tuesday 2nd April / presented by Hedvig Skirgård Daniel Midgley Ben Ainslie

Again we tackle the questions that others dast not.

  • Why do all children seem to know the "nyah nyah" song?
  • Why do classic movie stars talk in that strange accent?
  • Do Chinese characters stay readable longer than English words?
  • Who says they feel "less than"?
  • When a computer menu says "Save", is that an imperative or an infinitive?
  • Why does the word for "night" look like an N plus the word for "eight" in so many languages?

And more on this episode of Talk the Talk.
