You’re All Talk: Why We Are What We Speak

Saturday 7 October
Castle Hill Baptist Church

Why do we have different accents and where do they come from? Why do you say ‘tomayto’ and I say ‘tomahto’? And is one way of speaking better than another?

You’re All Talk is an accessible and fascinating study of the history of accents and the words we use, that reveals the powerful role they play in shaping who we are and our role in society.

Join linguist Rob Drummond as he explores the enormous diversity in how language is spoken to reveal extraordinary insights into how humans operate: how we perceive (and judge) other people and how we would like ourselves to be perceived.
