Episode 196: Lynne Murphy on The Prodigal Tongue

Good evening, listeners! We’re back this week with a linguistic treat, as our host Richard Aldous speaks with Lynne Murphy about her new book, The Prodigal Tongue: The Love-Hate Relationship Between American and British English.

Lynne Murphy is Professor of Linguistics at the University of Sussex. Born and raised in New York State, she has lived since 2000 in Brighton, England and is the author of the award-winning blog Separated by a Common Language. In her new book she examines fact and fiction about English as it exists on both sides of the pond.
