Renowned English language guru, author/editor of over 120 works primarily on the subject of language, David Crystal rocked-up to the University of Sheffield recently to deliver an electrifying talk on punctuation (not an intentional oxymoron).
He entertained a packed St George’s church with his rapier-like wit, astute anecdotes, and unparalleled knowledge of lexis, grammar, and syntax. Among the audience were the Birkdale English Language A-level teachers and their L6 students – eagerly drinking in La Crystal’s heady brew, and broadening their own understanding of the myriad machinations of the mother tongue.
