CANCELED: Badger Talk- Waukesha: "Wisconsin English"

Event Details

Thursday, March 19, 2020
6:30-7:30 p.m.
321 Wisconsin Ave., Waukesha, WI
This presentation, including plenty of audience participation, will explore the kinds of English spoken in our state, including pronunciation, words and word forms, and grammar. We’ll look at how key features of Wisconsin English have developed over time – and how remarkably recent they are – and how they are changing and becoming more distinct today.
