  • Feeling Cheesed Off

    [24.02.2019, 13:34] It’s been a big week for cheese. No, there isn’t some kind of international cheese shortage, and no, we haven’t been attacked by rounds of mutant camembert. Instead, the opening of a humble vegan shop in Brixton in South London has pushed the issue of what we actually mean by the word ‘cheese’ into the […]
  • Making Up For Lost Time

    [17.02.2019, 15:35] I ran out of time to write a new Wordability post last week. Basically, I just didn’t organise myself properly. Fortunately, I have had a couple of linguistic pointers recently to help myself prepare a better schedule so that I can continue to publish once a week. Inspiration comes of course from Donald Trump, amid […]

  • Under The Influence

    [03.02.2019, 16:58] In our interconnected world, the ability of individuals to influence the thinking of others on a global scale has probably never been greater.

    [27.01.2019, 11:59] While the creativity of the English language never ceases to entertain me, one thing it doesn’t tend to do is become full of words which are particularly long.

  • Trump Gives Us Food For Thought

    [20.01.2019, 11:34] In a week in which an egg has become the most liked post in the history of Instagram, it seems appropriate that a mistaken Donald Trump Tweet about food should have become one the most parodied of the week. With … Continue reading →
  • An Awks Week for All

    [13.01.2019, 13:00] It’s been an awkward week for many people. It started with the Golden Globes, and the meeting of present and possibly future James Bond, Daniel Craig and Idris Elba. The photo of the two of them together, with the single … Continue reading →
  • A New Year’s Resolution

    [06.01.2019, 18:00] A Gap Year is the standard term for a year off. I’d like to claim that the near 12-month hiatus in writing any new entries for Wordability is the result of a life-changing time away in which I have visited … Continue reading →
  • What is the ‘-ling’ in darling? (And what is the ‘dar-’ for that matter?)

    [04.01.2019, 15:16] One media darling in recent popular culture has been actor, heartthrob, and internet meme Ryan Gosling. His fans, no doubt, readily find a connection between darling and Gosling. And the etymologists among them – yes, they have lives too – find another one. It’s -ling. The -ling in darling and Gosling (if we treat the […] The post What is the ‘-ling’ in darling? (And what is the ‘dar-’ for that matter?) appeared first on OxfordWords blog.
