Description

The mail keeps coming, and we keep answering.

  • Is English really a dialect of Chinese?
  • Why do people say “uncomfortableness”, when we already have “discomfort”?
  • Are "ankh” and “anchor” related?
  • How does learning traditional languages help communities?
  • Is there a better Noongar word for “white fella” if you’re not a fellow
  • Is “mire” one syllable or two?
  • Why do people say they're “finna” do something?
  • Where does the word “Carlton" come from?
  • And listeners report back on “yeah no” in other languages.
