Show Information

And why are competitive Scrabble players so upset about being denied the chance to use deeply unpleasant language in polite company? Dr Chris Cummins (The University of Edinburgh) takes a look at word meaning and use on the ragged edge of good taste, while trying not to get drafted for the culture wars.
