When was the last time someone gave you a 'jawbation'?
Can't remember? That's because old regional words have all but disappeared - and they are just waiting for linguist David Crystal to rediscover them.
Come and hear David speak about his new book, The Disappearing Dictionary, and some hidden gems from the English language. There will be an opportunity for a Q&A and book signing after the talk.
jawbation (noun) - A long and tedious harangue; a scolding, severe lecture, or reprimand.
