It's been too long since I've posted here. And it will be a bit longer still. I'm currently in the US doing a tour of dictionary archives as part of my research for some on-going projects. Since I have limited time here, I'm working in the evenings to prep for the days in the archives.
But I did want to let you know about some podcasts that I don't think I've mentioned here on the blog.
Helen Zaltzman, for her Allusionist podcast, interviewed Rachele de Felice and me about our research on please and we had such a good time talking that we just kept on doing it. So, on her following podcast, she included some of our discussion about thank you.

Click here for Allusionist 34: Continental (including thank you)
For more of me talking about polite words, click on the 'politeness' tag at the bottom of this post.
And this was longer ago, but I also appeared on the Relatively Prime podcast talking (again) about maths. Click here for that.
The Boring Conference, 7 May, London (sold out, sorry! but thrilled to be boring enough to be chosen for it)
Society for Editors and Proofreaders 27th annual conference, 11 Sept, Birmingham.
Another post will come soon-ish!
