Another chance to get involved in our project! The latest issue of English Today is out now and it contains another feature article from this project. In this feature I ask the following questions about how linguists should engage with the public, on which we would like to get your input.
- Who are engaged in public and academic discussions on usage and normativism in the Anglophone world, and who lead them? Academics? Lay linguists? Language professionals? Educators?
- Is there public critical language awareness when it comes to issues of usage and normativism?
- How can linguists or others raise or increase critical language awareness?
- Is there a role for linguists to engage in this discourse outside academia?
Please leave your comments and suggestions!
