Word for Word is a brand new podcast from Macquarie Dictionary. Throughout this series, they will explore the surprising histories behind everyday words and phrases, go behind the scenes with the dictionary editors, and meet some of Australia's most interesting word-lovers, from Scrabble champions to hip-hop artists.
In their first episode of Word for Word, they explore the dictionary's job to record every aspect of Australian English, warts and all, and to keep up with changes in the language. But sometimes change can land the dictionary in a world of controversy... Also: how do you tell the difference between a great guy and a good bloke?
Join them as they explore our language: the ways we use it, the ways we abuse it, and the ways we ultimately change it via the link here.
