HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) -- Those interested in words and how they become part of our language may want to check out a lecture taking place at Hope College this coming Monday. Dr. Anne Curzan of the University of Michigan will present the address “Local Language Choices, Broader Social Change” through the De Graaf Lecture Series in Winants Auditorium at Graves Hall. Curzan will consider the extent to which social attitudes shape language and whether or not language has the power to shape social attitudes. The lecture begins at 4 p.m. The public is invited and admission is free.
