Speakers include:

    Guys,

    This looks (meaning “orthographically sounds”) GREAT. But I have three questions: 1. Could a person outside of linguistics per se, but a keen reader therein + a kind of sociologist-of-language-at-the-same-time “attend”? 2. Is there a cost associated with this? 3. If “yes” to #2, QUANTA COSTA???
