Linguistics For The Storyteller
17:30, Sunday 29 May 2016 (1 hour 30 minutes)
This is more than a "how to write" panel. Language is everywhere in our stories: it's the vehicle we use to tell them, but also the engine that runs societies and personal relationships, and the tool that characters use to define their own identities. Linguistics is the study of language structure, from the level of sound, to word and sentence structure, all the way to the level of political discourse. Come learn about how it can turn your gut knowledge of language into a more conscious and powerful tool.
