Lunchtime Seminar

Dr Dirk Bakker

Wednesday 08 February 2012, 1300-1400
C1 Physics Building

Are all languages essentially the same, deep down? Some linguistics people think so. We include about 20 different mother-tongues in our very international Physics Department, and most of them seem very different on first hearing. But are they really?

Dik Bakker can reason/discuss/classify around 300 languages/dialects, so he is in a good position to tell us some of the answers.

Bring your lunch to C1 and hear what he has to say.
