Language - like love, money, religion and politics - has many faces and is a central concern for communication studies, literature, cognitive science and of course linguistics. This short talk, which takes an explicitly linguistic perspective on language, identifies six faces of language.

Rich in data and examples, and showcasing the surprising, the mysterious and the it-was-right-there-in-front-of-you-all-the-time-but-you-never-noticed-it dimensions of language, attendees will leave with a heightened understand of the complexity, systematicity and pervasiveness of language.

Deak Kirkham has a BA in English Language and Linguistics, an MA in Syntax and Semantics and is slowly tottering towards a PhD in language learner interaction and identity.

A Lecturer at the University of Leeds, his ongoing fascination with language(s), languaging, lexis and linguistics sustains him in the turbulent vicissitudes of the 21st century Human Experience.
