How Animals Disappear in Our Language (with Carol Adams)


“Language doesn’t merely have the effect of dehumanizing; it deanimates. It objectifies.” Those are the words of today’s guest: my friend and colleague Carol J. Adams, whose life’s work spans across many disciplines, as you’ll hear, including etymology, linguistics, feminism, and animal advocacy. 

Thank you for listening to and supporting Animalogy.

In This Episode

In conversation, Colleen and Carol J. Adams explore:

  • where the animals go when we eat meat
  • how the word meat has changed over the centuries
  • the effect of “zero plurals” (listen for what the heck that means)
  • the power of words to objectify, diminish, and dismember an individual
