Via David:

Dear all,

Today’s speaker is Kate Wild, from Glasgow.  Her title is

‘”When we find in a language one word serving many needs, we may be sure that that
language is the mental furniture of an intellectually rude and poverty-stricken
people”:  attitudes towards polysemy in Late Modern English’

Room S.1.5 as usual, 1-2pm, hot and cold drinks provided.  Hope to see you.

David and Nuria
