🎙 Lingthusiasm Episode 47: The happy fun big adjective episode

Happy? Fun? Big?

Sounds positive. Who isn’t down for some positivity these days…

It’s Lingthusiasm Episode 47…

In this episode, your hosts Lauren Gawne and Gretchen McCulloch get enthusiastic about adjectives! We talk about how linguists come up with diagnostic tests to determine whether something is an adjective, other quirks about adjectives (such as why we say “big red ball” but not “red big ball”), and the galaxy-brain question of whether grammatical categories like adjectives are even valid across all languages.

Galaxy-brain, you say? I’m in. :milky_way::brain:

Thanks for sharing this episode @pathall! It’s definitely one of those ones that was shaped by our docling experience!
