Interesting interview about language with Stephen Fry this morning on Radio 4.
He talks about how languages, and English in particular, constantly innovates:
“We shouldn’t be afraid of innovation in the English language… Our language is being totally enriched by flavours from all kinds of discourse.”
But also how the nuances of word choice are so crucial to conveying the sense behind the phrasing.
Great listening if you have 5 minutes to spare…
