Language in Motion

We live in an ever-changing world — rarely is anything at stand-still. To emphasize the evolving nature of language and linguistics, we have picked 'Language in Motion' as this year's theme. This powerful metaphor (thank you Lakoff) is open for free interpretation: one might think of moving through space during migrations (past or present), envisage a language developing internally through time or conjure up the imagery of a (re)vitalized language ascending from the depths of collective oblivion to the hallmark of modern times: the Internet.

How does your language move?
