Language and Innovation

Tony Thorne |

I have been writ­ing, teach­ing and broad­cast­ing about new lan­guage and lin­guis­tic and cul­tur­al change for three decades. I have com­piled dic­tio­nar­ies and writ­ten cul­tur­al his­to­ries and biogra­phies and found­ed The Slang and New Lan­guage Archive at King’s Col­lege Lon­don, a resource for schol­ars, the media and lan­guage enthu­si­asts which I still curate today.

I want to use this new site to pub­lish updates in the form of com­ments, arti­cles, pod­casts and links, but also to share archived con­tent from the past in the hope that it is still of inter­est (and in the knowl­edge that lan­guage-and-cul­ture con­tro­ver­sies don’t date as quick­ly as some peo­ple think).

I’m always col­lect­ing new terms, expres­sions and usages, but, unlike some lin­guists and many lex­i­cog­ra­phers I’m not inter­est­ed only in the form and func­tion of words. I want also to explore the emo­tion­al, psy­cho­log­i­cal and social effects of lan­guage and the feel­ings and motives of those who use it.

Please do con­tact me to donate new words and ideas, to ask for infor­ma­tion or to com­ment, crit­i­cise or sug­gest new areas to inves­ti­gate. I’m also a con­sul­tant for trade­mark­ing, brand-names, the lan­guage of adver­tis­ing and lan­guage-relat­ed legal mat­ters.
