On today's episode of Scatterbrained, we're talking about language! We travel to Monrovia, Liberia where we meet an infamous polyglot who may not know how to speak over fifty languages after all. Then we remind you of some easy-to-forget English rules, like when to use who vs. whom and the true definition of irony. We figure out how to get a word in the dictionary. Then you learn little-known words that describe language. Finally, we head to James Cameron's world of Pandora to get the backstory on Na'vi in the film Avatar.
