Place, landscape, and language
Identifying and communicating about places is fundamental to how we navigate the physical and social world. This workshop explores how we talk about place, both in regard to the vocabulary and grammar that a language has available to categorize landscape, and concerning how people use place reference in conversation to achieve communicative, social, and practical goals. Speakers will present on spoken and signed languages from South America, Africa, Southeast Asia, Australia, Papua New Guinea and Europe.
Please see the program for further details.
