Professor David Crystal makes a welcome return to the festival to champion the cause of English grammar.
A leading expert in the field of language, David works as a writer, editor, lecturer and broadcaster, and has had over 100 books published. His new book, Making Sense, is the glamorous story of English grammar. How can this be? Come and see how grammar can be made to come alive and become intriguing and relevant to everyone, including young children. The Times described David’s depiction of child development as ‘only one of the attractions of this engaging account of the history and structure of language.’
