I listen to the language radio show and podcast A Way with Words
. They cover etymology, the history of sayings, regionalisms, and other linguistic odds and ends.
They've recently started a page they call the "word wall". They've asked listeners to submit photos of themselves holding their favorite word.So I did. And my photo got added!(Photo credit and thanks to my wonderful Kit!)
* Our son Timothy had a question featured on the show last year. He had wanted to know why a tie in Tic Tac Toe is a "cat's game."
* Of the other listeners on the word wall, I think my favorite is the guy holding "shenanigans" upside down. :)
