2/14/08: Slam Dunks and No Brainers
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – Thursday on RadioWest, we're talking about American pop language. Leslie Savan is joining us - she's the author of the book Slam Dunks and No Brainers. Catch phrases and buzzwords, Savan explains - have a sort of glitz to them and when we use them, we draw on their power. And it's not just in our informal speech - advertisers, corporations and yes, even politicians use these colorful phrases to communicate. So like, whatever, you should totally check it out.
