Dear all,

On Tuesday 19th December, the **THIRD LINGUISTICS TRIVIA NIGHT** will be
hosted by Rosey and Katie (from the University of Melbourne), as an
end-of-year get-together! Don't worry – we won't be testing you on the
finer points of Glue semantics, or asking you to produce a nasal-ingressive
voiceless velar trill, but we will put together some fun questions and
puzzles that are broadly language-themed. Language enthusiasts in the
Melbourne area are all welcome!

Trivia will be at The Clyde Hotel, beginning at 7pm, but we suggest you
arrive a bit before if you want to grab a bite to eat. Food and drink are
available at reasonable prices (see menu
There is no cost to participate, but there will be a donation box at the
door, and any contributions will go towards one or more Master-Apprentice
Language Learning Kits to support language work by Indigenous participants
in training programs offered by the Resource Network for Linguistic
Diversity <http://www.rnld.org/>.
Previous trivia fundraising efforts led to Zoom recorders to support work
on the Ngarrindjeri, Wonnarua and Jandai languages.

We'd like to get an idea of numbers in advance, so please RSVP here
