Word Perfect – Susie Dent in conversation with Sam Cleasby
Sun, 18 October 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Word Perfect from queen of Countdown Susie Dent, has a fascinating word for every day of the year. There is a whole world of extraordinary etymology here from snaccident (the realisation you have eaten the whole packet of biscuits) to scurryfunge (frantically tidying up by shoving things into a cupboard before guests arrive), let alone the real people behind Jack the Lad and Gordon Bennett. You’ll never be lost for words again.
Susie Dent is a one-off. She breathes life and fun into words and language – Pam Ayres.
Sam Cleasby is a writer, blogger and Radio presenter.
