WW 807: You're a Contronym!

Beep boop - this is a robot. A new show has been posted to TWiT…

What are your thoughts about today’s show? We’d love to hear from you!

Instead of Microsoft Authenticator you can use Authy. It has an Apple Watch app.

Not necessarily. If you need to do pushes, you need to use the MS Authenticator.

At one point when discussing contronyms, I thought I heard both hosts making the assumption that German would adopt a simply logical approach, in contrast to other languages. In opposition to that view, I would recommend a browse through Mark Twain’s essay The Awful German Language, which parodies the struggles of an English speaker making a first attempt to grapple with the language, particularly with regard to how it was written in the 1880s.
