Linguist David Crystal and his actor son Ben travel the world in search of the stories of spoken English. Witty, authoritative and jam-packed full of fascinating facts, their latest book You Say Potato celebrates the myriad varieties of English and how our accents speak louder than words. Join them on this dramatic, linguistic and familial journey. 

Ben Crystal is an actor, author and producer, best known for his work on performing and promoting the works of William Shakespeare in the so-called "original pronunciation."

David Crystal is a linguist, writer, editor, lecturer and broadcaster. He has been a university professor and is the author of many books, including encyclopedias on language for Cambridge University Press.
