FSC English department lecture
features Dr. John Crow
The linguistics specialist discusses complexities of words
LAKELAND, Fla. (Sept. 9, 2004) - The English department at Florida Southern College presents a lecture by Dr. John Crow, associate English professor, titled, "What Do You Know When You Know a Word?" The presentation takes place Sept. 23 at 3:45 p.m. in the William H. Danforth Chapel on campus. The public is invited and refreshments will be served.
Crow will discuss the complexities of words beyond their meaning, pronunciation, and spelling. "While these are certainly legitimate areas of knowledge, there are many other areas, complex and intricate, that all native speakers have at their immediate disposal as they speak, listen, read, and write," Crow stated.
Crow received his bachelor's degree in Russian with a minor in German from the University of Oklahoma, and his Ph.D. in applied linguistics from The University of Texas. Prior to coming to FSC, he taught at the University of North Texas and worked as a computer programmer. He is the author of several scholarly articles and textbooks dealing with language and has presented numerous papers at local, national, and international conferences.
