A Living Language
The English language is a living thing, growing and changing with the passage of time and evolving to match the culture of its speakers. On today's HearSay, we'll explore aspects of our language that have fallen out of prominence but might be deserving of a resurgence. Also, Cathy Lewis is joined by the editor of the American Heritage Dictionary for a look at the new words making their way into our lexicon and the more obscure ones that are deserving of a place in your vocabulary.
