It's always delightful to listen to the British talk about the English language.

Четвертый сезон стал самым любознательным, потому что я без промедления лезла в гугл и ютуб, чтобы расширить свои познания в обсуждаемых областях. В самом начале меня ввел в ступор вопрос: кто такие ventriloquists оО

The Mouth рассказывает не только о том, насколько важна эта часть нашего тела, которая служит одновременно многим целям, но и о тех самых ventriloquists (википедия выкидывает меня на страницу под названием «чревовещатели», но не уверена, что это достойный аналог), история которых ухо

I enjoyed listening to this series.

I found this podcast amusing and entertaining and not what I expected. I thought it would be all about Fry being snooty and berating how much the modern world has ruined the English Language. That’s not what I got at all.

Ein paar nette Gespräche über sprachliche Themen, die so verschieden sind wie "Die Zunge" und "Englische Soziolekte in der Aussprache". Läßt sich angenehm hören und bietet auch einige interessante Informationen, ist aber mehr Geplauder als wissenschaftliche Abhandlung und geht daher nicht sonderlich in die Tiefe. Aber allemal wert, es sich einmal anzuhören.

Favorite parts were on humor and one liners, puns and language as a sign of class. I could listen to Stephen Fry all day.

Больше всего понравилась серия про U и Non-U, или Как говорить, чтобы попасть в Букингемский дворец не с заднего входа.

I have definitely listen to at least part of this before, although I don't think I finished. Short and interesting, always good for a solo drive.

How to speak English?
How many ways are there?
Which is correct?
This BBC audio program is fascinating, wide ranging, and for those who value the English language, a delight!

I am enjoying this series, but it is far too short in my opinion - 4 episodes lasting a mere 30 minutes each.

The mouth: how does it help us speak? Lip reading was very interesting
Brevity: headlines, haiku and one word punchlines
Persuasion: advertising, marketing and flirtation

Fascinating, as always
