We are pleased to announce that on March 15, 2013 our own Brent Woo presented at the TEDxEMU talk. His presentation was entitled “Say A Command” and discussed how linguistics is an unknown name, but has a larger impact on the world around us.
He drew examples of the purpose of linguistics from speech recognition tools in the corporate world and his own experiences from school and working here at LINGUIST List and ILIT. To view his talk, you can visit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mR2AkKs4tiI
If you have an interest in linguistics and are in the Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor area, there are many possible ways to get involved at the institute. Contact us for more information.
