The languages of Manchester’s Muslims and Jews

Sunday 14 November 19.00 – 21.00

Manchester, UK

Greater Manchester’s Muslims and Jews have a very wide range of languages as either their first or second language.

Yaron Matras, Emeritus Professor of Linguistics at the University of Manchester and Honorary Professor at the Aston Institute for Forensic Linguistics, is an expert on language and society.

After briefly covering the wide diversity of languages spoken in Greater Manchester generally, he will focus on the languages of GM’s Muslims and Jews.

His talk will be followed by short contributions from two Jewish speakers and two Muslim speakers about their personal linguistic journey through life.
