Linguistics in the Pub in London (LIPIL)

LIPIL is an occasional gathering of language activists and linguists in London and serves as an informal forum for the discussion of languages, linguistics and related issues. We plan to meet roughly once a month and discuss a particular theme or issue that is of interest to the group. It builds on the LIP concept which originally began in Melbourne, Australia and has spread to other places in that country, and now to the UK.

LIPIL is coordinated by Lauren Gawne (SOAS, University of London) and is open to everyone who is interested. We're currently looking for people who might be interested in helping to organise LIPIL, or write summaries of each of the events for the Endangered Languages and Cultures blog. Or you can Tweet on the night with the #LIPIL hashtag.
