Linguistics Society (LingSoc)



The Monash University Linguistics Society (LingSoc) is a club for
everyone interested in the whys and wherefores, how’s, when’s, what’s
and what-the-hell’s of language. Anyone with an appreciation for the
intricacies of language is welcome to join and participate in our
linguistics-related activities, including: word-based board games such
as Scrabble, movie screenings and the celebration of relevant holidays, as well as just language in general. For the Linguistics
students out there, we also occasionally run Linguistics workshops to
help with revision around exam time, but as previously mentioned,
anyone is more than welcome to come along and join in with our fun!
