We are pleased to conclude the calendar year with another Linguistics Circle gathering, Thursday, December 7, 7–9pm. We invite all who are interested to join, to take a break from studies and final assignments to discuss the topic of the month. This month, PhD candidate Iain Sungmin Park will be presenting a paper entitled, “Sacred Language Ideology for Nomina Sacra Contractions.” Ancient New Testament manuscripts contain what are called nomina sacra, or “sacred names.” This paper seeks to address its meaning and use through examining linguistic ideologies and scribal tendencies or preferences.

Anyone who is interested in joining is most welcome to join this and future meetings. As usual, there is a pre-Circle dinner gathering at 5pm. We will meet in Cullen Hall near the back doors (that face the centre of campus) and walk together to the Phoenix on campus.
And as we have done throughout this year, we will be meeting at the College (board room), as well as on Zoom (link below) for those who are unable to join in person.

For any questions or comments, please contact co-chairs Dr. Stanley Porter, Dr. Dave Yoon (yoond2@mcmaster.ca), or email CBLTE directly (cblte@mcmaster.ca). We look forward to another fruitful discussion!
