Meeting Description:

As the UK's first Professor of General Linguistics, J. R. Firth influenced
generations of linguistics scholars down to the present day. His innovative
approaches to phonological theory (Prosodic Analysis), semantics (collocational
analysis), and other aspects of language remain influential today, and if
anything continue to grow in their impact.

As a celebration of the 120th anniversary of his birth, and to mark fifty years
since his death, there will be a day of talks and remembrances, and an
exhibition of important items from the Firth archives at SOAS and York.
