Description

Voices from the Vaults: in search of spoken language from the past

Join us for this inaugural lecture as Professor Ivor Timmis opens the vaults to discover late eighteenth and early nineteenth century sources, often neglected by linguists, to offer remarkable records of spoken language from the past.

Apart from the linguistic and historical interest, these sources offer insights which are often vivid and poignant, and sometimes funny.

Date: Wednesday 18 September

Time: 18:00 - 19:00 (arrival from 17:30)

Venue: Headingley Campus
