For this episode, we put out the call to listeners, and they responded. Daniel’s taking questions and giving answers.
Should we be fustrated or listen to vinyls? Is a movie based on or based off a true story? How do you recognise gaslighting? What does a linguistics career look like? And have you got another think coming?
Daniel answers them all and more on this episode of Talk the Talk.
A new edition of Shakespeare’s works credits another author — Christopher Marlowe — with some of the Bard’s work. But how can you tell? Is this just another Shakespearean conspiracy theory? And what does this mean for Shakespeare’s legacy?
Scholar and skeptic Eve Siebert talks with Daniel, Kylie, and Ben on this episode of Talk the Talk.
We’re starting to understand synaesthesia — the blending of senses that some people experience. Now language researchers are using synaesthesia to understand how we process language, and even how language got started in the first place.
Linguist Daniel Midgley finds the synaesthete in all of us on this episode of Talk the Talk.
What happens when computers can use language like humans can? Language workers may be out of a job.
Translators, teachers, and others are watching with concern. But is there reason to think that we’re on the verge of solving all the computational language problems? Or are some things just too hard for computers?
Linguist Daniel Midgley gazes into the crystal ball on this episode of Talk the Talk.
