Everyday spoken English

Postby frank » Fri May 12, 2006 5:03 am

The name Melvin Bragg showed up earlier on this board. Here one can find an incredibly interesting radio programme about spoken language, about "everyday conversational language, the langue people speak"

For 'Inside English', Melvyn (Bragg) goes inside the differences between spoken and written English to find out the way science is being roped in to analyse and then potentially change the way we use it.

This link still works, so y'all should check it out. It really is interesting.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

You'll have to double-click on the .ram file. It will open and all be there. At least that's what it did when I listened.
