About the book:

This engaging collection of National Public Radio broadcasts and magazine pieces by one of Americas 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.
