In RACING WITH THE MOON / DANCING WITH THE STARS. Richard Lederer, Ph.D., will share the etymology of words and phrases derived from our moon sun, galaxy and the stars. He’ll also welcome your questions about the English language — puns to punctuation, pronouns to pronunciation, and palaver to palindromes.
