What’s in a Word?

I like good strong words that mean something. ~ Louisa May Alcott

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Shakespeare

A week of very hot weather and a very intense teaching schedule has come to a close. After a quiet morning spent re-acquainting myself with my garden and my family, I find that I am a little short of words.  I’ve used up so many of them this week that I’ve decided to share a clever video from Radiolab, all about words.

Many thanks to my student John who shared this video with my class. Enjoy!
