Linguistics in the Pub in London (LIPIL)

LIPIL is an occasional gathering in London of anyone interested in languages, linguistics and related issues. We meet roughly once a month in a pub in Bloomsbury (most recently the Marlborough Arms) and discuss a theme that is of interest to the group. It builds on the LIP concept which originally began in Melbourne, Australia, and has spread to other places in that country, and now to the UK.

LIPIL is coordinated by Lauren Gawne and Peter K. Austin (SOAS, University of London) and is open to everyone who is interested. The next LIPIL meeting will be in 6-8pm on Tuesday 17th January 2017. Current information about meetings can be found on our Facebook page.
