The Society aims to bring together members of the university with an interest in language. We meet every other week during term time, attracting speakers from a variety of departments and institutions both inside and outside Cambridge.

Meetings are held on Thursday afternoons. During the academic year, we will be based on Sidgwick Site. Tea and biscuits are served from 4.30pm. Talks begin at 5pm and last about an hour, with time afterwards for questions from the audience. The talk is usually followed by a wine reception at the talk venue. These wine receptions are very popular and offer the opportunity to talk to the speaker and other members of the Society in an informal atmosphere.

Membership is £6 a year for students, and £10 a year for non-students. Life membership is also an option for students. This money goes towards paying speakers’ travel costs and accommodation. You can send your subscriptions to the Treasurer (Valentina Colasanti, St John’s College,, or pay at one of the meetings. The Society is largely dependent on members’ subscriptions to cover its costs.
