Fry’s English Delight

If you love words, you’ll love this. Stephen Fry takes the language police to task in an animated celebration of the English language. Doesn’t need any more introduction than that: it speaks for itself. Thanks to Kenny for bringing it to my attention.

  1. I really have to thank you for posting this!

    This is something that we’ve talked about in a similar way during a couple of my linguistic classes.
    That comment about dressing up language like you would dress up for an interview was fantastic and I definitely will be holding onto that idea for when I start teaching.

  2. Hi Jimmy,
    Good to hear from you and glad you found it useful. Make sure you keep following the blog when you start teaching!
    Bill
