OLLI at Clemson Presents The Pleasures of Language
OLLI at Clemson University presents The Pleasures of Language Wednesdays, September 14th to November 16th, from 11 a.m. to noon at the Charles K. Cheezem Education Center. Why was Iceland originally called “Snowland?” How does “PowerPoint” illustrate “CamelCase?” The answers to these “potato-chip questions” (because you can’t survive on just one) will be answered over 10 classes with an intense, but informal look at contemporary slang, jargon, dialect and catch phrases. This all-new interactive course is not a lecture course. $55 for OLLI members; $85 for non-members.
