Details

Linguistics Trivia is being held as an end-of-year get-together! Don't worry – we won't be testing you on the finer points of generative grammar, or expecting you to reconstruct Proto-Nostratic phonology, but we will put together some fun questions and puzzles that are broadly language-themed.

Linguists and language enthusiasts in the Melbourne area are all welcome!

Trivia will begin at 7pm, but we suggest you arrive a bit before if you want to grab a bite to eat. Food and drink are available at reasonable prices (see menu online).

This will be a fundraiser for the Resource Network for Linguistic Diversity. There will be a donation box at the door so you can put something towards the purchase of a Zoom H1 digital audio recorder to help language work by community participants in the 2nd DRIL Professional Development Workshop.

There will also be some prizes on offer for the winning team, courtesy of the University of Melbourne Linguistics and Applied Linguistics Postgraduate Club.
