Audiobook Summary:Stephen Fry hosts this programme on the joys of the English language - as heard on BBC Radio 4. The English language is chock-full of maritime metaphors: cock up, taken aback, chip on your shoulder, and show a leg. And, with the help of a Greek removals firm, we also find the origin of the word 'metaphor'.
