Title Details

With the popular Lexicon Valley Podcast, teacher John McWhorter brings linguistics to life. Here you’ll learn why people talk funny in old movies, the history of certain slang words, why Shakespeare is so hard to understand, and much more, including episodes on syntax, dead languages, neurology, etc. McWhorter is an enthusiastic host, offering up guests that help him explore the words we use in a way that is just as irreverent as it is educational. McWhorter is a linguistics professor at Columbia University and a writer of numerous books on language.
