How Language Functions as a Window to Our World
Thursday, April 28th, 11am, Building L, Library Lounge
Language use and its potential to accomplish various things has always intrigued linguists for centuries. As the discipline has evolved, many linguists have sought to ascertain how language can serve as a veritable index for culture and its complexity. In this discussion, Ernest Gray, PhD. Student in Linguistics and New Testament studies will share how the promising arena of Systemic Functional Linguistics can serve as a window into culture as well as help us make sense of our world.
