Dear All,
[Sorry if you’ve already received this message via a different route.]

I'm forwarding the message below for Dr Napoleon Katsos, at Trinity College Cambridge. This is the second year for this competition, and I'm told that it generated about 50 excellent entries. There's a web link at the foot of the message; further queries to Dr Katsos, please, not to me.


Trinity College Cambridge, Linguistics Essay Prize 2016

This is an annual Linguistics competition for Year 12 (Lower 6th) students. The Essay Prize aims to raise awareness of the systematic study of language as an interesting and multifaceted subject in and of itself. It is hoped that the Prize will encourage students with an interest in linguistics to explore this further and to apply for a University course in this subject. In addition, the Prize aims to recognise the achievements of high-calibre students from whatever background they may come, as well as the achievements of those who teach them.

The topic for the 2016 competition is given below. 

‘It is often claimed that the language we speak influences the way we think. Consider what this claim means (e.g., Is there only one way to understand it?) and evaluate it. Discuss relevant evidence from cross-linguistic comparisons and/or psycholinguistic experiments'.

You are warmly invited to submit an essay of between 2,000 and 2,500 by the first of 1 August 2016.

The competition carries a First Prize of £600, to be split equally between the candidate and his or her school or college, and a Second Prize of £300, which again is to be shared equally between the candidate and his or her school or college.
