“I’m delighted to be at York St John University. During my time here I want to help people improve their writing style and develop their confidence. It is important for people to understand that when they write they are writing for an audience, be it a lecturer or otherwise. The reader needs to feel informed and excited by what they read and, with essays, feel there is a voice to an argument.”

‘Being Creative with Language’ a Talk by Professor Ronald Carter at York St John University

Wednesday, Nov 20, 17:15–18:30 

in De Grey 017

Professor Ronald Carter, University of Nottingham

This talk looks at the relationship between language and creativity, drawing on data from multi-million word corpora of spoken and written English and on examples from journalism, advertising, everyday speech, canonical literature and e-communication. The talk looks at the relationship between different forms of creativity for different purposes in different social contexts and explores the relevance of better understanding of creativity for applied linguistics and for language and literature studies. The underlying argument is that creativity is not a property of special people but a special property of all people.
