Language and Languages - Part II

Dr Dik Bakker

Wednesday 14 March 2012, 1300-1400
C1 Physics Building

Are all languages essentially the same, deep down? Some linguists think so, others don't. We include about 20 different mother-tongues in our very international Physics Department, and most of them seem very different on first hearing, but so do gold and silver when just looking at them. But are they really?

Dik Bakker will give the second part of his presentation on this topic. Bring your lunch to C1 and hear what he has to say.
