Somos los lingüistas

Aquí podrás escuchar algunas de las conferencias de pasadas ediciones. Mientras esperas, unos minutos musicales:

There comes a time / When we heed a certain call, / When linguists must come together as one. / There are people speaking, / They bind and c-command; / It’s grammar, the greatest gift of all.

We can’t go on / Pretending day by day / That we know our language works in the brain. / We are all a part of / God’s linguist family, / And the truth, you know, grammar’s all we need.

We are the world, / We are the linguists, / We are the ones who make a brighter day / By making theories. / There’s a choice we’re making / By forming hypotheses / And we’ll describe a language / Just you and me.

Send them a research group / So they’ll know that someone cares / And their data will be / thoroughly explored. / God has shown us / By turning stone to bread / That even a linguist must be fed.

When you’re criticized / There seems no hope at all, / But if you just believe / There’s a usage-based approach. / Well, well, well, well, let us realize / That debates will always come / Even though we stand together as one.
