8/3/07: Talking Right

UC Berkeley Linguist Geoffrey Nunberg
UC Berkeley Linguist Geoffrey Nunberg

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Linguist Geoffrey Nunberg argues that conservatives aren't just better at framing political debate or finding the best catch phrase, but that they've actually been able to capture the language of everyday political discussion. For proof, Nunberg says, don't listen to Fox News or Limbaugh, listen to how liberals themselves talk. His book Talking Right came out in paper back last month, so we're rebroadcasting our conversation with Nunberg about the transformation in the country's political language. (Rebroadcast)
