066 How languages are built
2:00PM - 3:00PM
Have you ever wondered how and why one language differs from another? Find out in this interactive lecture, where Professor Ian Roberts, a world-renowned expert on the syntax of Celtic, Romance and Germanic languages, describes some of the building blocks of language.
Audience members will be encouraged to ask questions and to contribute information about languages which they speak/have familiarity with. After the lecture, participants are encouraged to come to the sister event 'Lingquiztics' to see how much they have learnt!
