That's What They Say

Communication, collaboration, networking--they're all about language.  The language we use today, whether we're texting, negotiating, or ordering food, is the focus of "That's What They Say", a new radio segment/blog on new American words, slang, and regional vocabulary.  Brought to you by Michigan Radio, part of the PBS network, "That's What They Say" is really a series of Sunday morning radio segments with Anne Curzan, a University of Michigan English professor, talking about current language trends.  Each post is linked to a podcast of the original broadcast.  For more in-depth posts about the language we use today and why we use it, check out "Lingua Franca," one of the free blogs of the Chronicle of Higher Education, where Professor Curzan is also a regular contributor.
