The Lost Lectures

Mark Forsyth

View the talk

Mark Forsyth is author of The Times Bestseller, The Etymologicon, and writer of The Inky Fool blog. Mark is genuinely obsessed with the origin and meanings of words: his first book is a circular stroll through the hidden connections of the English language. Among many other notable achievements, Mark has dated the word ‘crap’ to 50 years earlier than anyone has found a citation for it and explained more unusual English phrases than perhaps anyone else.
