Coming up

3:10 pm Tuesday 28 October: The Language of Food

language of food book coverThe words on menus at restaurants reveal more than just what's for dinner. Stanford University linguist, Professor Dan Jurafsy has studied almost a million menus and restaurant reviews. He says he can predict what a meal will cost just by the words on a menu. If it's tasty, it's a cheaper selection; if it's crisp, it's a mid-range priced menu and if the words are in foreign language, you're going to pay more for the meal. Professor Jurafsky's new book is called The Language of Food: A Linguist Reads the Menu.
