We all communicate in our daily lives, but how do languages actually work?
This hour, we talk with linguist Nicole Holliday about the science behind language. We learn about the socio-linguistic cues that we all rely on everyday.
And we talk about how much of what we learned about “good grammar” is actually wrong.
Are you a stickler for grammar? If so, have you thought about why?
