In a week dominated by reports in the media of parliament using inflammatory language, and the announcement that Sam Smith wants people to use new preferred pronouns, we discuss whether our natural language is becoming more like a formal one.
What are the differences between a formal and natural language? What’s the importance of context in our speech and communication?
Do our MPs go too far with words like “surrender” and “betrayal”?
We make predictions of where this may all end, and if we are seeing the turning point against woke culture.
