The Caroline of Brunswick
39 Ditchling Road
What's the talk about?
Lynne Murphy (Senior Lecturer in Linguistics at Sussex University) takes you on a grammatical tour of transatlantic prejudices and challenges what you think you know about Americanisms--and their effect on the Mother Tongue.
Lynne moved to the south coast of England in January 2000, having lived in the US most of her life and in South Africa for 4 years in the 1990s. While in the UK she has been teaching and researching in the fields of semantics, pragmatics and psycholinguistics.
As her alter-ego Lynneguist, she also writes the Separated by a Common Language blog. You can follow lynneguist on Twitter.
Advance tickets are available @ £2 + 50p P&P from the venue's website
