Linguist Professor Wexler @IELC

On Tuesday, 23 January 2019, IELC had the pleasure of hosting renown linguist Professor Paul Wexler to give a talk on linguistic comparisons between English and Indonesian. As a specialist in historical linguistics, Professor Wexler outlined French, Germanic, Latin influences on the original English language and provided comparisons with Arabic influences on Bahasa Indonesia. This was a fascinating talk in a series of linguistics topics that Professor Wexler has shared with us over the past several years. We look forward to the next talk!
