At my office, there’s an awful lot of podcasting. Meaning, I listen to an awful lot of podcasts at work.
Some good, some bad, some just to kill the time. I found Tides of History through an advertisement on a different podcast I listen to (and they say advertising is dead…) and it’s great and I highly recommend it, but that’s not what this post is about.
This post is about how much I freaking love linguistics. Y’all. It’s so cool.
If you have never read about the evolution of English, then I CANNOT RECOMMEND IT ENOUGH. It’s a fascinating topic, I don’t care who you are.
So imagine my sheer joy when the latest episode of Tides of History is all about the evolution of Romance languages! I was in heaven. Give it a listen. You don’t have to care a whit about history or linguistics or English or Latin or anything! It’s just neat!
