The Linguistics Circle

The Linguistics Circle is an informal student-run group. In the past, the Linguistics Circle has hosted movie screenings, volunteered at linguistics events, and held weekly meetings to discuss linguistics-related topics such as:

  •        What is even a syllable?
  •        The art of Translation
  •        What the $%^& : Profanity in our lives
  •        The Linguistics of Texting
  •        Loanwords and Linguistic Purism
  •        Dolphin “language”
  •        Gender Binary in Language
  •        Can babies learn language in the womb?
