: The last episode in Stephen Fry's radio series on language went out on the BBC today, complete with a small contribution from me. It was based on the various greeting words we have in English, notably 'hello'. The programme is online at http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00m68s5/Frys_English_Delight_Series_2_Hallo!/ if you fancy a listen.

: The series title is a nice pun for us here in the UK. Less so if Fry's Turkish Delight chocolate bars aren't sold where you live.

That is so cool! (Turkish Taffy, but no Turkish Delight where I live.)
