Update: Please contact us for currently scheduled LEXinars!
LEX is pleased to announce the first offerings of LEXinars, offerings for language study via online conferencing.
The first LEXinar will be offered this summer; two schedules are being offered. Our topic is The Spell of Spelling and the Glamour of Grammar, which will investigate the intersections of English orthography with English syntax. We’ll take a look at how both spelling and grammar have been historically and culturally characterized as magical or tricky, and we’ll peel back those perspectives to understand how both spelling and grammar make sense.
Session I: Fridays, June 6, 13, 20, 27, and Monday June 30: 2:00pm – 3:30pm Central Daylight Time
Session II: Mondays, June 16, 23, 30, and July 7 and 14: 9:30am – 11:00 am Central Daylight Time
Each registration is good for one person at one computer or tablet. Schedules may not be mixed. You may inquire or register via email or by filling out our contact form here, and online payment can be made at this link. Space is limited and is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
Later this summer, we’ll offer Old English for Orthographers. Once we get these underway, we’ll consider additional topics.
A tip of the hat to Real Spelling, who’s launched the wonderfully enlightening Spellinars!
We hope you can join us!
