Dictionaries and grammar “rules” don’t have the final word on language — and believing they do can harm more than help, especially for the trans community. Sociolinguist Archie Crowley deconstructs three common myths around language, demonstrating how it’s a fluid system that naturally evolves in the direction of inclusion.
This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxUofSC, an independent event. TED’s editors chose to feature it for you.
