How do we try influencing what other people think about the world? What techniques get used for bending the truth? In this week’s episode, we take a look at some of the linguistics around propaganda and censorship: what people can try beyond just outright lying, how using conversational rules can get you to think things that aren’t said, and how we can use bias to influence people’s views.
We hadn’t done a sociolinguistics one for a while! Looking forward to hearing what people have to say. ^_^
