I've just (10 mins ago) bought a marvellous book
THE LANGUAGE LOVER’S
PUZZLE BOOK Lexical Complexities and Cracking Conundrums from Across the Globe ALEX BELLOS
Bellos, Alex; Bellos, Alex. The Language Lover’s Puzzle Book: Lexical perplexities and cracking conundrums from across the globe.
It's only just been published but what sold it to me was Alex's talk from the Royal Institution
It also made me subscribe to the Royal Institution. I remember the physical building from visits in my teenage years, where we sat in the same room where Michael Faraday lectured, and the lecturer stood behind the same laboratory bench. I've watched a few lectures on YouTube but I've probably missed some good ones, so now I'll get alerts.
