The Way We Talk Now by Geoffrey Nunberg ISBN 13: 9780618116027

ISBN 10: 0618116028

Hardcover; Boston: Houghton Mifflin, October 15, 2001; ISBN-13: 978-0618116027

This engaging collection of National Public Radio broadcasts and magazine pieces by one of America’s best-known linguists covers the waterfront of contemporary culture by taking stock of its words and phrases. From our metaphors for the Internet (“Virtual Rialto”) to the perils of electronic grammar checkers (“The Software We Deserve”), from traditional grammatical bugaboos (“Sex and the Singular Verb”) to the ways we talk about illicit love (“Affairs of State”), Geoffrey Nunberg shows just how much the language we use from day to day reveals about who we are and who we want to be.
