Why don't people just say what they mean? We think in terms of our intentions, but often the outcomes of our conversations are shaped by differing conversational styles. Join Professor Tannen as she explains and explores how women and men tend to, and are expected to, use language in conversation, and how these ways of speaking affect relationships with family, colleagues and romantic partners. 

Supported by the Henry Sweet Society for the History of Linguistic Ideas

Speaker:
Professor Deborah Tannen, Georgetown University

Chaired by Jane Garvey, broadcaster
