In 2018, the University of Groningen and Lân fan taal will organize six popular scientific lectures, with a focus on language and on topics such as language development, dementia and multilingualism.

The lectures always take place on a Tuesday evening from 20.00-21.00 hours (doors open from 19.30 hours) in Obe. The lectures are free of charge, but registration in advance is mandatory because of the limited capacity. You can sign up with the form below.

Friesian ‘Piepers’! Changes in the Frisian language (lecture in Dutch)
In the Stimmen lecture of May, Dr. Willem Visser will give a short sketch of the Frisian language. The focus is on questions such as: how does Frisian relate to the surrounding languages, what is special about Frisian in comparison to Dutch and how has Frisian changed over time? He illustrates the latter on the basis of the Frisian word for ‘potato’.
