Language and (Linguistics in the corridors of) Power

Last week students from our third year module Language and Power headed for Parliament. With professors Lesley Jeffries and Dan McIntyre, they were guided around Westminster Palace by Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman, watched a parliamentary debate and met the editor of Hansard, John Vice, who is in charge of the official written record of Parliament.

Maybe it won't be the last trip down the corridors of power for one or more of them...
