Secret languages

The “E” in IDEA obviously stands for English, but we at the archive care about other languages too. Indeed, many subjects whose first language is not English are asked to speak a short passage in their native tongue.

Our interest in language now officially extends to secret languages, such as Polari, Ob, Pig-Latin, Efe, Pe, and Versan. That’s the topic of this month’s In a Manner of Speaking podcast from IDEA Founder and Director Paul Meier. Go here to listen. And stay safe out there.
