This week we’re having a rummage through the postbag and dedicating the whole episode to questions that you, the marvellous Purple People, send in each out.  We help people find out where all the different meanings of ‘mandarin’ came from, ponder whether there’s a word for the twilight of the morning, and we get to the bottom of a rather tricksy wordy riddle.   Also up for discussion are cauliflowers, rumours, ducks, and meadows.  If you have a question that you’d like us to look into then please email purple@somethinelse.com  A Somethin’ Else production.  To buy SRWP mugs and more head to.... https://kontraband.shop/collections/something-rhymes-with-purple  If you would like to sign up to Apple Subs please follow this link https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/something-rhymes-with-purple/id1456772823 and make sure that you are running the most up-to-date IOS on your computer/device otherwise it won’t work.  If you would like to see Gyles and Susie LIVE and in person on our Something Rhymes With Purple UK Tour then please go to https://www.tiltedco.com/somethingrhymeswithpurple for tickets and more information.

All aboard Purple People because today, Susie and Gyles will be taking you on a trip on the railways!  As our locomotive pulls the carriages along, we’ll see how freight trains are fraught, why university book sellers were also at the station and how a stop-off at a small town became insulting.  The Purple People will of course be receiving the red carpet treatment from Susie and Gyles will be making sure the timing on our schedules all align.  What are you waiting for? Let’s get on the (gravy) train!  If you have any questions for Susie and Gyles, please mark your letter ‘express’ and send it to purple@somethinelse.com for Susie and Gyles.

This week we’re full of chutzpah as we schmooze our way through the fabulous words that Yiddish has given to the English language. While our resident mensches don’t pretend to be mavens, they swell with kvelling as they revel in this rich and unique vocabulary covering everything from they smutty schmucks to the new Purple favourite ‘firgun’. Elsewhere Susie explains what ‘relexicalisation’ is, there’s a discussion on political correctness, and as always, three brilliant words to take into your week and a brand new poem to learn by heart.

One, two, three, One, two, three… We’ll be tripping the light fantastic as we explore the Waltz’s scandalous origin, cha-cha-cha-ing into the latin dances where Susie and Gyles prove it takes two to tango as we explore the Paso Doble and Charleston.   Gyles will jitterbug us into the days of his school disco despair whilst Susie shares times of being footloose and fancy free with her favourite dancing memory. If you have a questions about ballroom dancing or anything you would like to share with Susie and Gyles, please email purple@somethinelse.com  A Somethin’ Else production.  To buy SRWP mugs and more head to.... https://kontraband.shop/collections/something-rhymes-with-purple  Susie’s trio:  Grobble - fumble about in the dark with the hand  Sticklebutt - Headlong, with great impetuosity   Grumptious - Feeling a little irritable  Learn more about your ad choices.

This week we abandon our mufty and don our finest khaki dungarees to set off from Blighty in search of the rich influence of Indian on the English language.

It’s an honor to have you with us today Purple People as we plow through the colorful world of the lexicographer, author, language reformer and perhaps famously the dictionary creator, Noah Webster.  Known as the father of American English, he is the man principally responsible for the loss of the ‘u’ in the American spelling of words like ‘color’ and the person responsible for adding J and V to our alphabet.  Although we still visit islands (not ilands) and operate machines rather than masheens, his contribution to language is staggering and in this episode Susie and Gyles will deep dive into what cawt on and which went to the linguistic jail (thankfully ‘jail’ was one of the replacements that did catch on and replace its former ‘gaol’).  If you have a question or there’s a topic you’d like us to explore in a future episode then please email purple@somethinelse.com  A Somethin’ Else production.  To buy SRWP mugs and more head to.... https://kontraband.shop/collections/something-rhymes-with-purple  Susie’s trio: Finagal - to use devious methods to bring something about Havey-cavey - unsteady/uncertain or not sure of what you’re doing  Toot-Moot - a low, muffled conversation  Learn more about your ad choices.

Elsewhere Susie has some great examples of fossil words that you might like to bring back to life and Gyles gets passionate about Sutton Hoo.  Gyles and Susie also delve into the inbox to answer some more of your fantastic questions as well as receiving a slap on the wrist for making a walkie-talkie faux pas…  If you have a question or there’s a topic you’d like us to explore in a future episode then please email purple@somethinelse.com  A Somethin’ Else production.  Susie’s trio: Wheem - pleasant, gentle, or smooth Ponommerins - light, fleecy clouds that dapple the sky Shobbling - doing little odd-jobs around the house Learn more about your ad choices.

This week we’re going goo-goo and gaga as we investigate the wonderful words associated with babies.  We cut the umbilical cord, discover the Roman connections with c-sections, and reveal the link between a fountain and a baby’s head.  So, depending on where you are in the world, pop a dummy or a pacifier into your mouth and hop into our linguistic pram/buggy and we’ll whizz you through the language of babies before a well-earned nap in your cot… or should that be crib?  Elsewhere Gyles reveals the fascinating results of studies into the memories and language-learning of the very young and Susie offers up an unusual remedy for  a baby in breach.  And of course we answer lots of your questions along the way about being ‘wet behind the ears’, ’throwing the baby out with the bath water’, and much more.  If you have a linguistic query for Susie and Gyles then the email address is purple@somethinelse.com.

Postman Purple is back with his big sack of Purple People correspondence!  You heard it right folks, Gyles and Susie are diving into the mail bag where we are going to explore what connects airports and kitchens, what happened when Susie tried charcoal toothpaste and we have some Purple People theories on your ‘Aunt Nels’ (spoiler: includes shells and elephants).  We also venture into the world of the extraterrestrial and - perhaps a purple first - learn some language of the martians. Gyles takes us on a dangerous and sadly fateful voyage with a Flawed Horny Well Worn Ghost (Gyles will reveal all!) and also coins a new term we are sure many of you will relate to, as he acknowledges himself as a ‘dent-o-phile’. - to be submitted to the OED imminently.  Yours faithfully, The Purple Producers  A Somethin’ Else production.  We love getting your Purple Post so please email purple@somethinelse.com and you might be hearing your question in your Aunt Nels in the upcoming weeks.  TRIO  Plangent - A loud and resonant sound  Dendrology - The scientific study of trees Wegotist - Someone who overuses the royal ‘we’  To buy SRWP mugs and more head to.... https://kontraband.shop/collections/something-rhymes-with-purple Learn more about your ad choices.

Chocks away! Roll out! Hello! It’s another Tuesday and we’re pushing the envelope (well, not really, but we love alliteration) and presenting you, our Purple People, with another episode!  The last year and a half has been almost entirely devoid of holidays. Have you missed the miniatures? Have you longed for a drink as you fly over the drink? Have you ever had a Delsey dinner with a crumb cruncher?  Well even if you’re not up in the air, we at Something Rhymes With Purple will get you half way there this week, as we take off, cruise and land in the world of Aeroplanes!  Susie tells us how her love of turbulence turned a corner when a trolly dolly took a tumble (though don’t you call them that!) and explains how Roger and Romeo are related. Gyles adds the concorde to his fabulous list of names to drop and tells us all about Carol Vorderman in the cockpit!  Elsewhere Mayday has nothing to do with Summer, crop dusting has nothing to do with the harvest and mangoes may well be the favourite fruit of Mile High club members.  We love getting your Purple Post so if you have a question for Gyles and Susie then fire it over to purple@somethinelse.com and Bob’s your uncle.  To buy SRWP mugs and more head to.... https://kontraband.shop/collections/something-rhymes-with-purple TRIO  Umbriferous - casting or making shade  Solander - protective box made in the form of a book  Ortanique - cross between and orange and a tangerine  A Somethin’ Else production.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Roll up, roll up and scream if you want to go faster!  This week Gyles and Susie take a spin on the carousel (or should that be merry-go-round) as they waltz their way through the general hoopla of fairgrounds and carnivals. They marvel at the ironic profession of the inventor of candy floss, they toss away the notion that coconuts are shy, and Gyles reminisces about his father’s attempts to knock an old woman out of her bed. Strap in, it’s going to be a rollercoaster of a ride.  As always there are lots of your fabulous emails to answer so if you have a question for Gyles and Susie then fire it over to purple@somethinelse.com and Bob’s your uncle.  A Somethin’ Else production  Susie’s trio: Merry-go-sorry - a mixture of joy and sadness Edacious - fond of eating Sesquipedalian - a word with too many syllables; or using too many long words Learn more about your ad choices.

Bona to vada your dolly eek, Purple People! Now, if the above greeting to today’s episode is wholly incomprehensible then let Gyles and Susie decode it for you as they take us through the fascinating language of Polari. Whether you want to add a bit of Zhuzh to your conversation or if you have experienced something a bit naff recently, Susie is here to tell us to how these words found their way into this secret language which heralded from Italian, but evolved to encompass multiple other languages, as well as using a host of linguistic tricks to create this uniting language of the traveller communities.  Gyles will track how this language made its way into popular culture (accompanied with a number of name drops, of course!) and why in modern days, Polari found one of its homes in the LGBTQ+ community. Lau your luppers on the strillers bona and afterwards, on your computer keyboard and let Susie and Gyles know about any Polari questions you may have or if you have some Polari words you would like to share with them by emailing purple@somethinelse.com.

Happy Tuesday! We must ask, are there many Purple People in the Peri-perineum? It is the perfect way to spend a blursday! Now that we’ve properly exchanged pleasantries- get read… set and go! Because this week we are doing a Tom Daley and diving deep into the wonderfully relevant world of the Olympics! Do you fancy an ancient ritual in honour of Zeus? Given the tight leash on demographics oh so many Olympiads ago, we think… probably not! Are you buffed and oiled and ready for the athalon? Or do you prefer the discotheque to the discus? Regardless of what you need, we are here to answer all of your sporting and ancient athletic quibbles, queries and questions! Elsewhere, we have more name-dropping from Gyles, a lesson in ancient Greek from Susie and, as ever, your Purple Post!

I love Susie Dent on 8 out of 10 Cats Countdown (is that one word?? It's a supermarket here in Aotearoa NZ😊) This takes us many steps further. I love my wine but am not too crambazzled or cramboozled maybe 🤣 I'm finally working my way through from to start. Think I'll delete all the others.

hallo both of you. Just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping my lockdown bearable and helping with my creating my families quiz nights. I wanted to contact you in your reference to strange pub names. I worked in a lovely local pub called 'The Devil in the Boot', in Winslow Bucks, sadly now closed, but I believe it was the only in the country. The name derives from a local story where the Rev John Shorne whilst out riding saw, chased, and caught the Devil in his riding boot. He then took it to the well in the next village (North Marsden) and threw him down the well. An interesting name with an equally interesting name

I agree with Susie on the 'so my wife tells me' jokes. It's always got a bit of a slut-shaming association, especially because of the stigma and lack of rights for women in that time. I have heard a guy make that joke in real life as well, though, but I think he was nervous and regretted it immediately - his wife laughed politely and then glared daggers at him when she thought noone else was watching them.
