LUCL Colloquium 9 February
On Thursday 9 February David Crystal OBE (Honorary Professor of Linguistics at the University of Wales, Bangor) will give a talk entitled 'Pragmatics: the final frontier'.
|Date||9 February 2012|
|Venue||Klein Auditorium, Academy Building|
It has taken language scholars a long time to realise the centrality of pragmatics - the study of the choices we make when we use language, and of the factors governing those choices. This talk illustrates the way pragmatic factors enter into everything we say and write, and are a crucial factor in explaining why people use language in the way they do.
Due to the overwhelming interest in this lecture and the limited capacity of the venue, registration is now closed.
