Added DiffLines:
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler: Cawdrey, a linguist, is left "without language... forever" by the end of the story. Given all the various things that the Doctor described as "language" earlier in the audio, this can be ''very harsh indeed''.]]

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: [[spoiler: When the Ish makes its presence known at the end of episode 2, The Doctor can be heard in the background emphatically arguing with someone while only saying "ish".]]

Listen carefully through the headphones — she actually is saying that they've been "ished," as in, infected with the ...ish. This is definitely Getting Crap Past The Radar, since another word would fit perfectly, but the word she's saying still isn't actually a swearword.
* SoundEffectBleep: Used in-story as a means to keep Peri and Bob from hearing or saying ''...ish''. Also PlayedWith, when at one point Peri gets bleeped while very definitely saying [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar something other than]] "...ish".

The Doctor uses Osefa's BizarreAlienBiology to create a makeshift VirtualGhost out of her memories. It turns out that Osefa and Book recently visited an ancient tribal culture, whose people believed that all of language was created by a single word. Osefa turns out to have used grant money to investigate a very non-scientific field called transcendental linguistic (which greatly offends Cawdrey). She was convinced that the amount of possible meanings a word can have reflects its lexical status. For example, a word like "as" or "so" can have dozens of meanings, whereas longer words are less frequently used, therefore more rare, therefore the longest word in the universe -- the Omniverbum -- will only have a single meaning and thus have maximum lexicographical weight. Everyone's all very skeptical about this until the conference's guests get stuck on a MadnessMantra of "...ish". And all the written text around them spontaneously develops errors.
