I’m a huge fan of Lynne Murphy’s blog: separated by a common language where she delves into all sorts of interesting differences between British and American English. I’m also a huge fan of TED videos, and obviously I’m interested in linguistic politeness and British and ‘merican – it’s what this blog is about.
Well guess what! A TED talk by Lynne on linguisitic politeness and British and ‘merican has just arrived on youtube. Hurrah! Enjoy!
