01) Steven Pinker on the psychology of Innuendo & Euphemism


“Steven Pinker asks the question “Why don’t people just say what they mean?” and de-mystifies innuendo & euphemism for the rest of us.

Excerpted from his talk “The Elephant, the Emperor, and the Matzo Ball: Common Knowledge as a Ratifier of Human Relationships” at the Association for Psychological Science conference (May 26-29, 2016).”
