L- Language and Linguistics
This group aims to explore all aspects of language and the way we use it, including conversation, language learning, language change, dialects and the language of literature. Members are invited to suggest topics, and offers to lead sessions are very welcome.
This is not a course covering a set syllabus, nor is it a foreign language course. Rather, it is an on-going meeting to explore mainly the English language; while we do sometimes refer to other languages, no linguistic knowledge is assumed.
Meetings normally take place on the second Thursday of each month from 2.00-4.00.
We are currently meeting by Zoom, or in gardens when weather permits, with some email discussion between meetings. Details of meetings are emailed to group members. Indoor meeting may resume over the next year, in which case there will be a charge (tba) for room hire.
The group is now full, but please contact the leader if you would like to join a waiting list.
