  • 09.00 Anatoly Liberman Humans Are and Have Always Been Formulaic Creatures (V. Krėvės aud.)
    Homo sapiens thinks and speaks in formulas, which is inevitable (so neither good nor bad). From the Homeric wine-colored sea to the most boring buzzwords of our time, speech has always depended on ready-made blocks and ready-made verbal units. Likewise, on the level of content, formulas have dominated both oral composition and written literature (recurring situations, stock  gures, etc.). While speaking, we constantly reproduce short, nearly imperceptible phrases, such as of course and by the way, and such outwardly incomprehensible idioms as kick the bucket and beat about the bush. The lecture will be devoted to the growth and role of formulas in language and literature and the state of the formulaic mind, ancient and modern.
  • 15.00 Anatoly Liberman Why and How Do Words Change? (V. Krėvės aud.)
    An old joke. A professor meets a student and says: “Sir, you have missed my today’s lecture“. The student answers: “Not at all, Sir, not at all.” What happens to words over time, how--and especially why--do their meanings change so drastically and so unpredictably?” Don’t expect de nitive answers, but the lecture will give you some ideas, food for thought, as they say.

Book signing by Anatoly Liberman, the author of "Word Origins... and How We Know Them: Etymology for Everyone" (Oxford University Press, 2005), will follow.
