The Weird and Wonderful Sounds of Place-Names

Each week on The World in Words podcast, Patrick Cox and Nina Porzucki tell stories about languages and the people who speak them. In this most recent episode, they look at the pronunciation of names in both Old and New England. The podcast includes some comments from Judith Jesch in her capacity as President of the English Place-Name Society.
