Stephen Fry’s love of language

Stephen Fry, one of my favourite entertainers and advocates of language talks about his feelings towards ‘correct grammar’.

There is some difficult language here but it’s his message that’s important and one I would would encourage to all my students.

Can you choose some words you like or don’t recognise? Here are some of my favourites – haughty, pedants, whinge, sartorially and wince.
