    Why 'Tiny' Sounds Smaller Than 'Huge.' Nixing the Horrid 'Of.' Kokopelli.

    The sounds of certain words make us think of things that are big or small, round or spiky, and the tendency is nearly universal.

    Questions, Questions, So Many Questions!

    Questions, Questions, So Many Questions!

    I have a big metaphorical pile of questions from listeners in which the answers are too short to be a whole podcast segment, so today,  I'm going to string them together and do a bunch of quick hits. We'll talk about color idioms, formatting bullet points, and the words "fulsome," "presently," "anyways," "afterward," and more.
