I hated English at school, I’m not really sure why. It took me into my late teens before I enjoyed any reading or writing.
Words fascinate me though.
A project, currently underway, called The Mysteries of Vernacular seeks to explain the wonders of words through animation. There are only a few words at the moment, but they are being added all the time. Who knew that the word hearse had been through such a journey? Or that clue started with a word for a ball of string?
