Word To Your Mother Tongue: Ultraconserved Words

The lexical triumverate spit some diction from all seven language families. Speaking of families, ‘mother’ is a common word but father is a cross-cultural rolling stone. Raj tries to take credit for everyone’s language on behalf of South Indians. Jono predicts that most new word meanings will be created by autocorrect, and Joe preaches the life saving properties of tree bark.
