About this event
Join popular Columbia University professor John McWhorter for a lively discussion of how to use linguistics to find “structure in what seems like chaos, mess or the trivial.” And why he thinks the nine nasty words featured in his new book are really “nine nasty ways of being human.”
McWhorter’s new book Nine Nasty Words: English in the Gutter Then Now, and Forever will be available for purchase and signing.
