Jessica Oreck’s Mysteries of Vernacular — animated stories about words

TED-Ed has announced that it will add Jessica Oreck’s etymological mini-series, Mysteries of Vernacular, to its online video library over the next months. As Jessica plans to create 26 lessons — one for each letter of the alphabet, bringing stories of everyday words to life using paper cutouts and stop-motion animation — this is wonderful news.

Watch latest installments.
