Convenor: Joyce Burgess

We meet once a month during the Autumn and Winter on the 3rd Wednesday in the month at 2.30 – 4.00 at the Mint.

If you would like to be added to the list of group members in order to receive email up-dates and reminders, please contact the convenor.

There is no need to notify the convenor if you wish to attend, just turn up.

Our sessions are on any language-related topic. To give a flavour of our subjects, among our previous meetings have been: the decipherment of Linear B; an introduction to Russian; Esperanto; Sign Language; Pet linguistic hates etc..

At our December meeting we discussed Christmas Language, in January Andrew Staley led a session on Rhetoric and rhetorical devices and in February spoke about the Language and Reality of the Piraha Tribe in Brazil.

Our future topics will be the following:

Wednesday, 20th March 2019: Why Ancient Greek is so difficult

Wednesday, 17th April 2019: The Language of Humour

Summer Break - we shall resume meetings in the Autumn. Please contact the convenor if you have any ideas for future topics, either to lead a session or to suggest a subject for general discussion.
