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 and the language of literature. Members are invited to suggest topics that interest them and offers to present sessions are very welcome.
This is not a course covering a set syllabus over a given period, nor is it a foreign language course. Rather, it is an on-going meeting to explore mainly the English language and, while we do sometimes refer to other languages, no linguistic knowledge is assumed. Possible topics for next year include: changing English in our lifetime; philosophy and language; figures of speech; onomatopoeia; endangered languages; language acquisition.
