The Language of the Office
How can linguistics help us to improve effectiveness at work? From contracts to technical documents, from press releases, social media and advertising to meetings and collegial interactions, written and spoken languages intertwine and affect the day-to-day running of every company - yet we pay very little attention to it. Dr Erika Darics, School of Languages & Social Sciences, explains how to make the invisible visible and how can we get a deep insight into organisational communication practices where language plays a complex and increasingly prominent role.
11.00am
