Any analysis of language as a dynamic and evolving system must confront a self-evident truth: languages are spoken with intention by living, breathing human beings. The linguistic choices of individuals and groups point to the diverse ways that we understand our world and the complex meanings that we exchange with one another. This course is a collection of seminars given at the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language by both Centre members and visiting scholars. Please note: discussion at the end of sessions is edited out but any interjections from audience members during the talk is retained.
