Today’s episode is a continuation of my conversation with Dr. Valerie Fridland, who is a professor of linguistics in the English department at the University of Nevada, Reno. She’s also more publically engaged than many linguists, with a regular column in Psychology Today, and an upcoming book called Like, Literally, Dude. In this second part of our chat, we concentrate on a couple of language things that Professor Fridland was happy to discuss and elucidate. And BTW the first part of our conversation can be found as episode 93 from Wednesday.
