Coming Soon: Words

Friday, August 06, 2010 - 11:38 AM

This coming Monday (August 9th), we'll be podcasting our new episode Words. And if that's not exciting enough, we've got a fantastic new film from Will Hoffman and Daniel Mercadante to accompany it! Here's a preview for now--the full video will be podcast, and posted here on the blog, on Monday night.

The great take away is what does it mean if you only speak a language like English without any honorifics ( such as Korean) or genderization (like Spanish?) what can't English mono-linguals not think?

Shameless (but relevant) self-promotion: I create original illustrated etymologies (http://etysketch.blogspot.com); I post a new one (nearly) every Monday.

actually i forgot about the last name

so abumrad is probably romanization of Abu Muraad, which would mean Father of Muraad, and muraad can mean desire or intention


Earnest Father of Desire... haha

Oh and I found this about Robert; From the Germanic name Hrodebert meaning "bright fame", derived from the Germanic elements hrod "fame" and beraht "bright".

Gee! (a great word, though I'd never say it aloud) ever feel like the worlds can hear your thoughts?

All I've been thinking about lately has been words!

Can't wait!

I'm excited for the new podcast. I've already listened to the entire back catalog and am anxious for these new 5 shows to air. Wasn't there already a show on Words?
