Videoclip for language
The Simpsons: Season 3, episode 23
In this episode, Lisa orders Homer subliminal tapes that are meant to help him lose weight with no effort. The tape supplier sends “vocabulary builder” tapes instead. Homer is discouraged that the tapes are not working, but they actually are.
One portion of the clip is now available here. It is a nice illustration of the difference between using language that is accurate and language that is clear.
