Event Details

As part of Campus in the city 2024 take a tour of language and its wonders: From historical Lancashire to the digital world, from the depths of the mind to the tip of your tongue!

The influence of language is all around us: from the way we speak and hear, to how we think and interact with other people (and even machines). Linguistics and English Language is celebrating 50 years in Lancaster and invites you to come on a linguistic journey with us through games, displays and demonstrations. You can see how your own tongue moves when you speak, and enjoy a multimedia experience of how accents and dialects have changed over the years in Lancashire. Put your mind-reading skills to the test, and challenge yourself to see if you can tell a voice you hear is human or machine!

Campus in the city a FREE family friendly festival bringing Lancaster University's research in to the community. To view the full programme of activities please see the Campus in the city webpage.
