    I should add that one of our Swansea linguists, Rob Penhallurick, is taking part! That’s how I learnt of the exhibition.

    I’m planning (hoping), if the kitty permits, to go and see Steven Pinker. Anyone who’d like to join me, pls let me know!

    Where is Pinker talking? I’d love to hear him.

    For those of you who don’t know him, more info on Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_Pinker
