A linguist and an expert on the development of the English language, David Crystal presents two books that tell us a great deal about English as it is spoken in the 21st century. You Say Potato looks at accents and our different ideas about 'correct' pronunciation, while The Disappearing Dictionary features a treasure trove of lost English dialect words such as dabberlick, fubsy and squinch.
