Lexicon Valley Now In Written Form


Slate‘s language podcast, Lexicon Valley, now has a blog component, by popular demand. (Surprise, surprise—word nerds want to read more.)

So far, it’s mostly cross-posts from the always-wonderful Language Log on the topics of slang, translation, and the word meh.

We look forward to reading more posts—and hearing more podcast episodes—about the delightful strangeness of language.
