The subject of this month's Dean's lecture is: Language and Social Life: How are they connected?

Dr. Valerie Fridland, UNR Professor of Linguistics, studies how language and social life are intimately connected. Discussion includes common misconceptions about language and dialects, such as what causes dialects, why some people have one, and how much influence parents have on their children’s speech.

Doors open at 6:30 pm for a meet and Greet, with complimentary refreshments from Starbucks. The program will run from 7pm to 8:15pm.
