This Wednesday we’ll be talking about language (specially language in relation to gender). Inspired by the short extracts I had a look for people talking about words. Here’s a few I’ll be adding to my to do list …

+ Chimamanda Ngozi – The Danger of a Single Story (TED Talk)

+ Steven Pinker – What Our Language Habits Reveal (TED Talk)

+ James Geary – Metaphorically Speaking (TED Talk)

+ Dr. Paul H. Fry on Linguistics and Literature – essays 8 and 9 in the list (iTunesU Open Yale Courses)

+ Helene Cixous – The Flying Manuscript (UC Berkeley)

See you all on Wednesday, 7pm at X Marks the Bokship!
