Professor David Crystal, one of the world's foremost experts on language, presents three of his most popular lectures in this special one day event taking place of Thursday 16th October in The Shaw Theatre.

Lecture 1- The Future of Englishes. English is now a global language, but what are the consequences of this newfound status for the future development of the language?

Lecture 2 - Language death: writing the obituary of languages? David Crystal reviews the way languages are dying, asks why and what can be done.
