We redefine some terms for you in our episode on language. We also hear about the “word gap,” why children born into poverty learn fewer words, and what’s being done to combat the gap. Spoken word artist Quique Aviles takes us on a gentrification terminology tour. We dissect political doublespeak and talk about President Obama’s lack of immigration action. We learn about dirty words in Spanish, and we learn how one composer speaks the language of music on TV shows.
