Survey Seminar Series Autumn 2014
The Survey of English Usage organises a number of seminars each year for staff and students from the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and beyond. They are generously sponsored by the English Department.
The following research seminars will take place during the Autumn term.
Both seminars will begin at 4:15pm in Foster Court 114.
|Lynne Murphy (Sussex)
|"Polite" words in American and British English: how please, thank you and sorry differ|
|Philip Durkin (Oxford English Dictionary)
|Lexical borrowing and basic vocabulary: How well can we quantify the impact of loanwords on the basic vocabulary of English? Can we identify any common patterns?|
Note: Students studying for their MA in English Linguistics have been asked to write their own abstract of one of these talks as an exercise. For this reason, we have not published abstracts here.
All welcome! Drinks afterwards.
