Join us for the 2021 virtual Cal Week, taking place from April 24 to 30! Each year we enjoy meeting alumni, prospective students, and friends at Cal Day — to introduce ourselves or renew old acquaintances. We hope to return to this tradition of meeting face-to-face next year (not least so we can send the kids away with an ultrasound image of their tongue, or a spectrogram of their voice). This year, though, we are happy to highlight Prof. Peter Jenks's video on "What is Linguistics" and Prof. Larry Hyman's video on "Language Myths - the Freshman Seminar." Check them out here!
