Talk the Talk: Mailbag of R-R-R-R

Tuesday 21st May / presented by Hedvig Skirgård Daniel Midgley Ben Ainslie

The questions never stop, and neither do we.

  • What's the past tense of yeet, and why is English past tense so strange?
  • Can etymology help you spell rhythm?
  • Should French teachers have to speak with a Parisian accent?
  • Do's and don'ts? Dos and don't's? Where do the apostrophes go?
  • Why do some people use a trilled [r], when their language doesn't?
  • Is there a way to tell a language from a dialect once and for all?
  • Are there places where men and women have to speak differently?
  • Is word amnesia contagious?

We take all the questions on this episode of Talk the Talk.
