Perhaps we could insert some kind of eloquent, almost poetic sentiment here about how words do stuff and things and are good; however, we didn’t have the benefit of learning from London-based EdTech startup Mrs Wordsmith (not to be confused with Mr Swordsmith, we were mildly disappointed to discover). The team behind Mrs Wordsmith includes professors of linguistics, lecturers in...
