Talking About Animals

We have had a great day with the Animal Discourse team from the Department of Linguisitcs and English Languages today as we have been talking about animals. We have been looking at the different words we use to describe various animals and discussing whether what we say about animals affects they way we feel about them.

We were also joined by a collection of creatures from Lancaster and Morecambe College, which were a mix of popular and not so popular with the public, which demonstrated perfectly what the ‘Talking About Animals’ project is all about!
