    TALK - Talks are 90-minute electrifying, action-inspiring onstage programs, featuring four to six world class thought leaders who each present ideas on a single theme through either an individual presentation or a one-on-one conversation with a host.

    In the 16th and 17th centuries, Shakespeare invented over 1,700 English words, creating a cascade of effects on spoken and written language. Today—with text messages and emojis, email and instant messaging, Skype and Snapchat—we’re all a part of the language revolution. Join us for an up-to-the-minute examination of how we communicate today.

    What to expect: David Peterson on how he created Game of Thrones' Dothraki from scratch; Kory Stamper on choosing the words to add to Merriam-Webster; Deb Fallows on dreaming in Chinese; Dana Suskind on the impact of 30 million words

    *This Talk is presented by Comcast NBCUniversal.
