Tempat: Kamar 604, Perpustakaan, Kampus Hongkou
Summary: Not Chinglish nor Spanglish, not British nor Globalish, but, say, Entanglish! What is it and how do we all speak "it"? This lecture celebrates the dynamic intertextuality and diversity of "Comyn Englysshe" (William Caxton, 15th Century, England) by spotlighting some of the interlingual twists & turns in the English language that is evolving every day. Quite simply, as Gertrude Stein observes, does not every one of us sound different, with you also making your own way into the languages you inhabit?
