Linguists on the radio

As the new semester gets going here , my blogging time is getting squeezed out -- today's real life events start at 8:00 a.m. and end around 10:30 p.m. But in addition to what other LL contributors may post today, you can supplement your daily ration of crunchy linguistic goodness by listening to yesterday's Worldview show from Chicago Public Radio. I haven't had a chance to listen myself yet, but there are interviews with Nick Ostler, David Crystal, and Vivian de Klerk. If you're already familiar with them and their work, you'll want to hear them -- and if you don't know who they are, you should.
