Linguistics, Style and Writing in the 21st Century - with Steven Pinker
Does writing well matter in an age of instant communication? Drawing on the latest research in linguistics and cognitive science, Steven Pinker replaces the recycled dogma of style guides with reason and evidence. Subscribe for regular science videos: http://bit.ly/RiSubscRibe Watch the Q&A here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rYAnYXIhL0 In this brand-new talk, introduced by Lord Melvyn Bragg, Steven argues that style still matters: in communicating effectively, in enhancing the spread of ideas, in earning a reader’s trust and, not least, in adding beauty to the world. Steven Pinker is an experimental psychologist and one of the world’s foremost writers on language, mind, and human nature. He is Professor in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University and conducts research on language and cognition but also writes for publications such as the New York Times, Time, and is the author of many books, including The Language Instinct and How the Mind Works. Melvyn Bragg is a broadcaster, writer and novelist. He was made a Life Peer (Lord Bragg of Wigton) in 1998. Since then he has hosted over 660 episodes of In Our Time on subjects ranging from Quantum Gravity to Truth.

What your speaking style, like, says about you | Vera Regan | TEDxDublin
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. How we use language - our accent, expressions, and the structure of our sentences - changes from region to region. Vera Regan explains why we should listen to these differences, and why language can act as a cultural barometer. Sociolinguist Vera Regan is a researcher at University College Dublin, and her work explores the relationship between our cultural landscape and our changing language. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Linguistics 101: The scientific study of language [video 1]
I am going to run this video series like a university linguistics course for the benefit of anyone who does not have the time or money to attend actual university courses. So what is Linguistics? Linguistics is the scientific study of language. Linguists are able to study language from all kinds of different angles, and there is a lot more to study than you probably realize. If you've ever tried to explain something about your language to someone who is not a native speaker, then you're probably aware of its complexities, and that is exactly what linguists study. This video is designed as a primer course for anyone who is interested in languages and linguistics, but doesn't want to commit to a whole university course, or reading a dense textbook.

How to classify a variety of speech as either a language or a dialect is one of those never-ending linguistic debates. Here I give my 2 cents.

How language shapes the way we think | Lera Boroditsky
There are about 7,000 languages spoken around the world -- and they all have different sounds, vocabularies and structures. But do they shape the way we think? Cognitive scientist Lera Boroditsky shares examples of language -- from an Aboriginal community in Australia that uses cardinal directions instead of left and right to the multiple words for blue in Russian -- that suggest the answer is a resounding yes. "The beauty of linguistic diversity is that it reveals to us just how ingenious and how flexible the human mind is," Boroditsky says. "Human minds have invented not one cognitive universe, but 7,000."

Optimality Theory - is grammar about rules or constraints? -- Linguistics 101
A very short introduction to Optimality Theory, a linguistic framework that attempts to account for the grammar of human languages. Traditional models of grammar rely on complementary, unbreakable rules. The outcomes (sounds, words and sentences) follow those rules. Optimality Theory models grammar with ranked, violable, competing constraints. The outcomes represent the best candidates - the ones incurring the least serious violations. This video uses the analogy of two friends making plans for the night. One employs rule-based reasoning, the other constraint-based reasoning. The video then goes on to analyze the simplified grammar of plural -s (pronounced [s] in 'hats' but [z] in 'bags') using an Optimality Theory tableau. For an academic consideration of constraints, rules, optimal candidates, markedness/faithfulness and tableau conventions, refer to Prince & Smolensky, Optimality Theory: Constraint Interaction in Generative Grammar, sections 1.1, 1.2 and 2.2 (15).

It’s so well-known that American soldiers in World War II reportedly used codewords like “lallapalooza” to distinguish Japanese spies from Chinese allies. But American movies and TV shows have applied this linguistic stereotype to Korean and Chinese characters too, like Kim Jong Il in Team America: World Police, or Chinese restaurant employees singing “fa ra ra ra ra” in A Christmas Story. However, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese are completely different languages that each handle L-sound and R-sounds differently.

Michael Halliday - Language evolving: Some systemic functional reflections on the history of meaning
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, and hosted by the Department of Language and Literacy Education and the Faculty of Education as part of the plenary session at the 37th International Systemic Functional Congress, Halliday poses the evolution of language seems a simple enough concept: it arose in the work of scholars studying the history of linguistic forms (phonology, morphology, some syntax). But a language is a semiotic system; more importantly a semogenic, or meaning-creating, system; and meaning also has a history - a highly complex one. Every language has, in Sapir's term, a "certain cut", its own (constantly evolving) ways of meaning; yet most of its features are shared with other languages. We seek out the history of meaning along various routes: in the history of the form of language, in the history of the people that speak it, in the history of the locale where it is spoken, and in the history of its varied cultural contexts. Consider English and Chinese, as two widely spoken and widely-documented languages. The history of meaning in English includes changes that took place in ancient Greek and in ancient and medieval Latin, even though English is not "descended from" these languages; Chinese has undergone somewhat less upheaval, but the history of Mandarin involved contact with ways of meaning derived from Sanskrit and from Mongolian, both also "unrelated" to Chinese. I think that, to study the history of meaning, we take account of both child language development and the emergence of learned forms of discourse; we maintain a trinocular perspective; and we seek systemic and functional (especially metafunctional) explanations of semiotic patterns in discourse.

Embracing Multilingualism and Eradicating Linguistic Bias | Karen Leung | TEDxWWU
Karen Leung is currently in her second year in Woodring’s Early Childhood Education at Western Washington University. Through her involvement in this program, she has found that her passion lies in social justice and linguistics, and the overlap that exists between these two in bilingual education. Being in Woodring allows her to apply her passions to her teaching career, and gives her the opportunity to break down language barriers in education. Growing up as a native Cantonese speaker, Karen took ESL classes in school, all the while interpreting for her parents during teacher conferences at just seven years old. Through this experience, she realized that there is a need of increased awareness of the linguistic biases in our society and the need for more resources for immigrant families who are working in tandem with schools to provide the best possible education for their children. Karen also sees the potential of linguistic diversity in education, and believes that it is crucial for multicultural education. Karen's dream is to open a bilingual, Cantonese-English early childhood learning center, incorporating her knowledge in childhood development and multilingualism. Karen Leung is currently in her second year in Woodring’s Early Childhood Education at Western Washington University. Through her involvement in this program, she has found that her passion lies in social justice and linguistics, and the overlap that exists between these two in bilingual education. Being in Woodring allows her to apply her passions to her teaching career, and gives her the opportunity to break down language barriers in education. Growing up as a native Cantonese speaker, Karen took ESL classes in school, all the while interpreting for her parents during teacher conferences at just seven years old. Through this experience, she realized that there is a need of increased awareness of the linguistic biases in our society and the need for more resources for immigrant families who are working in tandem with schools to provide the best possible education for their children.

Neuro Linguistic Programming for Outstanding Communication
As an Executive Coach with a background in Project and Change Management in the corporate space, as well as nine years Military Service in the Royal Australian Navy, Emma Bryce also happens to be a certified NLP Practitioner. Emma utilises classic NLP techniques as a positive tool in her coaching methodology. This presentation illustrated how small changes to delivery, communication style and mindset can improve a professional presentation tenfold, thus ensuring a positive outcome. To begin with, Emma defined Neuro Linguistic Programming: Neuro: Mind Linguistic: language and non-verbal communication systems Programming: Ability to discover and utilise the programs we run in our neurological systems to achieve our goals In other words, NLP is how to use the language of the mind to consistently achieve our specific and desired outcomes. As an introduction, Emma discussed the way in which the sub conscious mind plays a powerful part in both our perception but also the perception of those we communicate with in the workplace. The key elements to the discussion were around unlocking the key to the unconscious mind by using various communication techniques combined with a higher sense of awareness. The importance of 'being' rather than doing or having is key to this understanding. Emma stated that during any given presentation, research has found that in terms of reaching an audience 55% of what is perceived by an audience is in the Body Language emitted by the Presenter, 38% perceived is in the Tonality used -- ie. the pitch, timbre and volume used; and only 7% perceived is actually what is said by the Presenter. For this reason, well thought out delivery is required to ensure you reach your audience with the desired message. Emma discussed the art of 'matching' or 'modelling' a subject's body language, tone and communication style, and how it can work positively to engage the subject from the outset. Whilst describing the importance of 'downloading' a particular 'Mindset' for anyone who is about to deliver a presentation of sorts, the concept of the 'Servant's Heart' was used as an analogy, reminding an individual to ask themselves 'who' they need to be in an effort to deliver, and indeed 'serve' their audience effectively. The idea that by 'choosing' your mindset prior to the presentation, beit the 'Rockstar' mindset, the 'Warrior' mindset (and so on), gives you control over the result, and your perception becomes the reality is an outcome. An empowering insight and a very helpful tool for those who struggle with standing up in front of a room and presenting information. Emma also provided an introduction to the various learning styles that individuals have. These can be broken down into the following categories: Auditory Digital, Kinaesthetic, Visual and Audio. Taking into account the various attributes of each learning style, Emma explained that a presentation can be designed to engage each possible individual in attendance. Next up was a discussion around the use of appropriately engaging body language. Using the right hand gestures, the message you are trying to portray can be accentuated and thus more effectively delivered. To conclude, Emma's presentation managed to involve the audience brilliantly, and really only 'scratched the surface' of the tools and benefits of NLP in achieving personal and professional success. For those of you who attended, here are a few exemplary You Tube clips depicting Steve Jobs, Barack Obama and George Bush displaying NLP type body language in their discussion, for you to use as an exercise in understanding further how certain gestures communicate certain ideas.
