  1. Sonia Sotomayor: Power of Words | What It Takes

    Justice Sonia Sotomayor tells the extraordinary story of her voyage from

    the

    most dangerous neighborhood in the United States, to the highest court in the land — a voyage fueled by the power of words.

    In a wide-ranging conversation with NPR’s Nina Totenberg, recorded at the Supreme Court in 2016, Sotomayor shares her earliest memories of life in the tenements of the South Bronx: her diagnosis with diabetes, her trips to the market with her beloved grandmother, her father’s death, and her love affair with books.

    She also talks about how she learned to learn, and to rely on the wisdom of friends and colleagues — skills that carried her through Princeton, Yale, her prestigious legal career, and one beautiful throw from the pitcher’s mound.

    Evolving English: Linguistics at the Library Podcast

    Episode 8

    Have you ever wondered how linguistic researchers find people to interview? In this final episode, Andrew and Rowan discuss the methods they use to carry out their research on the Isle of Man and Cardiff, and how these are different to those used for the Evolving English collection. We also talk about the Survey of English Dialects, and how to categorise speakers when they have a mixture of accent influences.

    Evolving English: Linguistics at the Library Podcast Episode 7 What happens when you have a collection of recordings of endangered languages but little further information about what’s actually on them? Guest speaker Dr Alice Rudge, a cataloguer in the sound archive, talks to Andrew and Rowan about the fascinating stories she has discovered through her work as part of the Unlocking Our Sound Heritage project, and the collaborations with curator Andrea Zarza Canova and linguists Professor Janet Watson, Abdullah Musallam al-Mahri, and Dr Miranda Morris that enabled these stories to be heard.

    Episode 6

    Are there any words your family use that no one else has heard of? Can you guess what fruckle, woga, elpit and pivoed mean? This week, Andrew and Rowan look into this phenomenon, with lots of examples from visitors who donated to the Evolving English WordBank! In the process, we explain how new words are made and how they might spread, via a (very) brief history of the English language.

    What happens when lots of languages and dialects come into contact with each other? This week, Andrew and Rowan discuss contact effects in super-diverse cities like London, and what happens to English as more and more people speak it around the world.

    Episode 3

    Is the UK in danger of losing its wide variety of local accents? In the third episode of Linguistics at the Library, Andrew and Rowan investigate why we might tone down our accent when talking to people from different areas, and whether the media is making all British accents sound the same.
