Valedictory Lecture: Professor Dick Hudson

Valedictory lecture by Professor Hudson, who is retiring at the end of this academic year.

One of the most eminent, and also one of the most approachable, linguists in the country, Dick Hudson retires at the end of this academic year after four decades in the Department of Phonetics and Linguistics at UCL. To mark the occasion, Professor Hudson is giving a valedictory lecture. No topic has been announced in advance, but it is bound to be accessible and thought-provoking. His main area of research has been in Word Grammar which embraces all of language (syntax, morphology, semantics and maybe even phonology) and integrates it with general cognition. It has implications for theories of social variation, the psychology of language processing, acquisition (i.e. learning) and even language teaching. He is interested in developing all these areas of theory, but even more interested in applying the theory to description. He also has a strong non-research interest in disseminating linguistics through the schools.
