Subject: BBC Reith Lectures
I just found out that tonight at 20:30 GMT, on Radio 4, the BBC Reith
lectures will feature Jean Aitcheson speaking on attitudes toward language
change and misconceptions about language standards. I looked at the World
Service listings on the Web but don't see it there. I can't get much info
from the BBC home page, which doesn't seem to let one email a question.
Does anybody know how to find out if the World Service will rebroadcast
this? Is anybody out there in a position to record the broadcast? Does
anybody know if for example NPR or CBC will rebroadcast the lectures?
Sounds like it will be an interesting talk.
