International Arts Talk XIV

On Tuesday, August 30, 2022, the Faculty of Arts in collaboration with De La Salle University Manila organized International Arts Talk XIV on “How Pandemics Fuel Linguistic Change: Coronalexicon in L1 and L2 English Varieties”. In this first collaboration between the two institutions, speakers, Cielo May Pura, Leah Gustilo, and Thomas Beirmeier presented their findings on new words that arose during the periods of the pandemic. The result reflects the fact that the English language has always been flooded with new words and meanings resulting from international crises, such as wars and diseases. This study is based on the belief that the fight for life during pandemics opens the door for neologisms in the English language.
