Encyclopedia Briannica: Speak Volumes

This site accompanies Encyclopedia Briannica, a web series in development that aims to expand and shift the public language conversation away from apostrophe fights and dictionary gatekeeping to focus on everyday speech acts you already perform and understand but never had a name for.

Talking is like walking, and you already speak in a way that gets you from here to there. You can strut or sprint, skip or stomp. Love your English. Play with your damn language.

Comments are encouraged. Publishing a post is just the beginning of our conversation. However, irrelevant and malicious comments are not tolerated, and will be deleted without notice.

This site is curated by Brianne Hughes, rogue linguist.
