The Language of Food
- A Linguist Reads the Menu
- By: Dan Jurafsky
- Narrated by: Steven Menasche
- Length: 6 hrs and 16 mins
Thirteen chapters evoke the joy and discovery of reading a menu dotted with the sharp-eyed annotations of a linguist. Jurafsky points out the subtle meanings hidden in filler words like "rich" and "crispy," zeroes in on the metaphors and storytelling tropes we rely on in restaurant reviews, and charts a micro-universe of marketing language on the back of a bag of potato chips.
Highly interesting but a lot of fluff
