UWG’s The Other Night School Presents: Good and Real Bad English: A Fraught Love Affair With Dr. David Newton, Professor of English

Free and open to the public – 6:00 p.m reception, 6:30 pm talk

Most of us learn “correct” and “incorrect” ways to speak and write the English language. Who decides, however, what is “good” and “bad”? Where do the rules that drive these debates come from? Join us for a lively conversation around what we love and hate about the English language.

Come be part of a dynamic learning environment with faculty delivering talks on important, intriguing, and yes, curious topics of interest to everyone. Free and open to the public.
