Professor David Crystal will be delivering a lecture titled "Let's Talk About Conversation":

We take informal conversation for granted because it's so natural and everyday; but if we analyse it we can discover surprising features. The lecture explores some of the findings reported in Professor David Crystal's 2020 book, Let's Talk: How English Conversation Works, from the first recorded instances a thousand years ago to the latest trends taking place online.
