Event details

Talk is really important for our society. From making friends to negotiating deals, diagnosing illness to solving crime, we use talk to get things done. But how does talk really work? What do we actually do when we have a conversation with someone? How do we know how to communicate with people we've never met before? Join us as we explore these questions and more through fun puzzles, quizzes and games.

Meet the researchers: Rose Rickford, Marina Cantarutti, Reihaneh Afshari Saleh, Dr Merran Toerien, and Professor Richard Ogden from the Centre for Advanced Studies in Language and Communication, University of York
