Word On The Street

Join Stuart Bathan as he dusts down his old thesaurus and takes you on a carpet ride to explore the lexicon and vernacular of language. Think of him working en charette like a linguistic trawlerman fishing for new words to fit the right occasion, or as a miner panning for phrases, and discovering golden nuggets of wonderfully obscure terms and bringing them to light. As the crepuscular light of Autumn creates patterns of mog shade, you can listen to Word On The Street, every 2nd Thursday evening at 7.00 and replays the following Tuesday morning at 2.00 Word On The Street is proudly sponsored by Nelson College Show Less
