The English language is permanently evolving and developing. New words and expressions are coined and existing words change their meaning as society, culture and technology progress.
Professor David Crystal is one of the world's foremost experts on language. He has recorded 26 short talks on some of these words and expressions that have recently made it into the language, if not necessarily into dictionaries.
Each unit contains the text of the talk by Professor Crystal. You can also listen to the talk and download the transcript, audio and a lesson plan for teachers.
The lesson plan contains teacher's notes, worksheets for students as well as a key to the answers.
