Linguist-Educator Exchange 
Linguist Gina Cooke creates tools to help people studying the English language.

English Language & Usage/Stack Exchange 
A question-and-answer site "for linguists, etymologists, and serious English language enthusiasts."


Online Etymology Dictionary

A go-to resource that’s well-researched and clearly written.


The Etymology Nerd

Adam Aleksic makes fascinating etymology infographics (shared on his Instagram account as @etymologynerd). Beautifully designed and well researched.


Word Histories

Pascal Tréguer’s well researched site provides detailed and well written posts on hundreds of commonly used idioms. Both enjoyable and helpful.


Dictionaries of the Scots Language

DSL Online is a wonderful search tool, drawing on the Scottish National Dictionary (SND) and A Dictionary of the Older Scottish Tongue (DOST).


The Phrase Finder

A helpful tool for researching the origin of idioms, phrases and proverbs.






Inky Fool

Mark Forsyth (The Etymologicon, Horologicon and The Elements of Eloquence) writes a wonderful blog about a lot of wordy stuff. You’ll never be disappointed to take a look.


Haggard Hawks

Pretty much everything Paul Anthony Jones does is great. He’s a great writer and a passionate lexicographer whose love of language is infectious. Lots to enjoy here.





The Allusionist

We shouldn’t have favourites. But this is our favourite. Helen Zaltzman is a legend and each show a treat.


Science Diction

“A podcast about words and the science stories behind them.”

Gloriously interesting. Lexicography and etymology meets crunchy science. Their recent special about the rise of Myers-Briggs was fascinating.


Something Rhymes With Purple

Anything with Susie Dent makes our heart sing. And her podcast with Gyles Brandreth is no exception. Always interesting, surprising and a lot of fun to listen to.


A Way With Words

Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett present this much loved podcast about language examined through history, culture, and family. Questions are contributed by people calling in and the discussion is always interesting.


Spectacular Vernacular

The Slate language podcast featuring Nicole Holliday and Ben Zimmer, two incredibly knowledgeable presenters discussing the ways language is changing. Nicole and Ben are great.



I love the dynamic between Ryan (Canadian) and Amy (Scottish) as they share their love and knowledge of etymology.  Always a pleasure.


The Vocal Fries

Described as “The podcast about linguistic discrimination”, Vocal Fries looks at language differently from other podcasts. Great guests and always thought-provoking.
