What we do
Since reforming in January 2015, our explorations have taken us in several directions: we enjoy discussing grammatical usage, or how language has evolved and is evolving, and sharing any articles found in the press or magazines. In particular we have been studying the various figures of speech used in rhetoric, hearing about a new one each month and then seeing whether we can apply them.
In addition we have been playing word games and sharing jokes, puns, anagrams and anecdotes.
Anyone who enjoys the English language in its various aspects, and who would like to learn more about it and how it can be used is very welcome to join us
The programme for future meetings depends on suggestions and contributions from members.
