Join us for a fantastic evening talking about language! Slang, dialect, etymology, language change, new words, and a whole lot more. Spend an enjoyable night with the hosts of public radio’s fun show about language as they explore the amazing oddities of English, from the very old to the very new — plus the language Q&A where you can find out what you’ve always wanted to know. You’ll come away enlightened and inspired!
A Way with Words is an upbeat and lively hour-long public radio show and podcast about language examined through history, culture, and family. Each week, author/journalist Martha Barnette and lexicographer/linguist Grant Barrett talk with callers about slang, old sayings, new words, grammar, word origins, regional dialects, family expressions, and speaking and writing well. They settle disputes, play word quizzes, and discuss language news and controversies. The show, on the air since 1998, is heard weekly by more than a half-million listeners over the air in 33 states and around the world by podcast. The show is produced by Wayword, Inc., a small independent nonprofit unaffiliated with any station or network.
