About the show
Ever wondered where all the best words have gone? They are queuing up to get on 'The Word' and be aired and exercised! This weeks' interview with Ken Daniels roamed through various realms of reality, pondering the arrival of 'newspeak' (in the form of txts and mssgs), the invention of new words, and the laughable length of some of our favourite ones. Poems from a veritable host of wordsmiths including Roald Dahl, Patrick Barrington, Wendy Cope, Joyce Grenfell, Bob Dylan, Douglas Adams and of course your host Peter Ball and his guest, Ken Daniels.
