CBC R1 - 2006 - And Sometimes Y - Series 1|244.52 MB () And Sometimes Y - Series 1 (CBC Radio 1) As shelves sag with unused dictionaries, emails go un-spellchecked and teens and advertisers re-invent our vocabulary, the question must be asked - do the old rules of language and grammar matter any more? Over the course of ten episodes host Russell Smith explores how our language is faring and failing under the strains of contemporary living. Warning: This is not your high-school librarian's dream show. From losing ourselves in translation to language taboos, "And Sometimes Y" digs beyond words and explores what's behind the way we talk and why. ======================================== S01E01: Right and Wrong (First broadcast June 27, 2006) Our first show brought up the topic of "right" and "wrong" English, and asked if Russell has any right to correct his friend’s grammar errors. We received a very large number of your thoughts regarding this topic, as well as your pet peeves. Guests included John Simpson (editor-in-chief of the Oxford English Dictionary), Jila Ghomeshi (linguist at the University of Manitoba), and editors Doug Gibson, Stephanie Fysh, and Camilla Blakeley. S01E02: The Ex-Words (First broadcast July 4, 2006) Why do words die? Like cells in the body, the words of a living language follow a kind of life cycle, in which death, mutation and creation form a normal part of healthy existence. But can this change also be unhealthy? Can it lead to the death of an entire language? In this episode, we heard from a writer who specializes in digging up dead words, another who has travelled among dead languages, and also from some rather ill characters called Wherefore, Fishmonger, and Hinterland, who told us directly about their predicament. S01E03: The Cool Crowd (First broadcast July 10, 2006) Who creates slang, and how does it catch on? Why has Russell’s once-cool vocabulary become so out-of-date, so quickly? In this episode, we heard from teenagers who are fluent in the latest slang, then talked with some adults whose jobs depend on following, or manipulating, the trends. S01E04: A Canadian Myth? (First broadcast July 17, 2006) Do Canadians speak English in a way that is unique to Canada? It's easy to recognize differences between American English and the British variety, and also easy to see that South Africans and Australians have their own national ways of speaking. But do Canada's claims to its own variety really stand up to scrutiny, or is the idea of a Canadian English just a tepid attempt at nationalist propaganda? S01E05: The Edge of Language (First broadcast July 25, 2006) What is language for, and how does it work? Most of the time, we use it as a tool for communication, of course. Sometimes, we enjoy it for its poetry, its rhythms and rhymes etc. Most of us stop there, but a few daring explorers and experimenters try to break new ground beyond the conventional limits. Can these people offer us new and useful ideas about how we talk to each other? (Or not? Perhaps what they do is just weird...) S01E06: The Translation Gap (First broadcast August 1, 2006) What gets lost in translation between languages? In this episode, we found out about words that don't have any direct English translation, and asked how different languages approach their job of allowing people to communicate S01E07: Men versus Women (First broadcast August 8, 2006) Do men use language differently from women? We find out what makes a bit of speech or writing masculine or feminine. S01E08: Taboo (First broadcast August 15, 2006) Warning: this episode contains language that may offend some listeners. How do some words become so powerful that we're not even supposed to mention them on the radio? The rudeness of words varies between cultures, and also changes over time -- English 'swear words' used to be blasphemous uses of religious language before sex-related words became more powerful. But maybe we're at the end of an era. As the F-word becomes more acceptable, and even the C-word is being reclaimed by some women, are we seeing the end of sex's reign at the top of English-language taboos? S01E09: Difficult Words (First broadcast August 22) Experts of all stripes use special words to communicate with each other, but are these jargon terms really necessary when talking to the rest of us? We hear from mechanics, academics, a lawyer and a Plain Language advocate about whether one needs complicated language in order to explain complicated ideas. S01E10: Thoughts Without Words (First broadcast August 29, 2006) Our discussion of jargon last week led us to ask about the relationship between thoughts and language. Can one have intelligent thoughts without words? Or, since we build our thoughts by matching up or making distinctions between words, are thoughts and languages really the same thing? ============================================ Format: MPEG Audio - Version 1, Layer 3 Bit rate mode: Constant Bit rate: 112 kb/s Sampling rate: 44.1 kHz 10 episodes of approx 30 minutes each
