Gaston Dorren: Linguistic cultures around the world / odczyt
Instytut Językoznawstwa UMK zaprasza na odczyt Gastona Dorrena "Linguistic cultures around the world”, który odbędzie się w Toruniu
18 lutego 2020 r. o godz. 12:00 na Wydziale Humanistycznym w Collegium Maius (ul. Fosa Staromiejska 3) w sali 307.
Based on my books Babel and Lingo, I will show how languages are more diverse than even many linguists realise - let alone laypeople. This is true both for internal features, such as grammar and phonology, and for the 'linguistic culture' that pervades each language.
Gaston Dorren jest autorem książek Lingo: A Language Spotter's Guide to Europe (2014) i Babel. W dwadzieścia języków dookoła świata (oryg. Babel: Around the World in Twenty Languages, 2018).

CLARIN Café I: CLARIN in times of Corona (VIRTUAL EVENT)
In times of crisis, public support for policy measures is important. With the outbreak of COVID-19, the public in various countries across Europe has shown general support for the advice provided by National Health Institutes and governments. However, it is uncertain how this support will evolve once the perceived urgency and rationale of the policy measures changes over time. We have already seen growing information divergencies between state-controlled sources and social media. Furthermore, we see interesting dynamics in Corona-related vocabularies across countries and cultures (social distancing, 1,5 meter society or economy, etc.). The timely understanding of changes in public opinion, sentiments and citizen or crowd behavior is important for policy makers and health care professionals and of course food for thought for academic scholars.
