The Language of Insults.

with 2 comments

Having exchanged a few words with that charming presenter, Michael Rosen, I enjoyed his latest radio programme, Word of Mouth. The topic was insults and funny it is too. I must get that book Shakespeare’s Insults, as it might fill in some of those vast gaps in my education (chance would be a fine thing).
