Edinburgh Ragged Talks

Introduction to Linguistics & Phonetics by Dr Tim Willis

This will be based on the introductory tutorial Edinburgh University offers in Linguistics & Phonetics, which I’ve taught several times. It introduces a number of ways of looking at language, as follows. The subject is descriptive not prescriptive, there’s no ‘right’ language or ‘better’ one (though some are easier to learn in some ways but usually balanced out by being harder in others).


Life by Chocolate; An Adventure Into Cacao By Ali Gower

Co-owner of The Chocolate Tree, an artisan chocolate shop I will be talking about Cacao sourcing, preservation of biodiversity, ethical trade & chocolate making from bean to bar. The subject of cacao & chocolate is highly topical. Despite being a food that is renowned for it’s pleasure giving properties, it has a dark cultural history.

The talks are free, with music by local talent Paul Montague between the talks.
