Good Reason

It's okay to be wrong. It's not okay to stay wrong.

Extra Talk the Talk banter

I always upload Talk the Talk episodes on Tuesday morning, but today I decided to have a chat with the smooth-voiced James Hall of RTRfm. He had a question about hyphens. So here’s the clip.

  1. Pretty funny. After learning Japanese, where they have no respect for spaces between words, I learned that hyphens, spaces and such are mere typographical convention and "length of word" had no other meaning.

    I love google ngram to watch the growth of ideas and phrases. For example, "proper grammar" did not really take off until about the 1960s!

  2. I have a random question, the product of a game of pictionary, an Argentinian accent, and trying to prove my brother wrong. I looked in my dictionary, but could you tell me if there is a phonetic difference between the words 'poll' and 'pole' with an Australian accent?
