Sat. Feb. 27 • Dan Jurafsky • The Language of Food: A Linguist Reads the Menu • 3:00-4:00 p.m. FREE

In The Language of Food, Stanford University professor and MacArthur Fellow Dan Jurafsky peels away the mysteries from the foods we think we know. Thirteen chapters evoke the joy and discovery of reading a menu dotted with the sharp-eyed annotations of a linguist. Jurafsky points out the subtle meanings hidden in filler words like "rich" and "crispy," zeroes in on the metaphors and storytelling tropes we rely on in restaurant reviews, and charts a universe of marketing language on the back of a bag of potato chips.
