6. Risk communication We need information in order to make sound risk decisions. Sometimes it seems to come at us from all quarters. The news media report plane crashes, oil spills, pesticides, water pollution, sports concussions, climate change, floods, droughts, mine collapses, rapes, gun violence, wars, terror, deflation, and hyperinflation. Politicians and merchants highlight risks that we should fear and that they can fix. Health and safety experts describe risks that they want us to fix, by changing how we eat, sleep, drive, exercise, or have sex. These messages reach us in the air, online, in magazines, and on shopping

3. Multilingualism, myth, and controversies Folk linguistics Society has conventions for the use of language, like ‘speak properly’ and ‘don’t interrupt when somebody’s talking’. There are recurrent ideas and superstitions surrounding language, like ‘French is logical, Italian is beautiful, Japanese is vague’ or ‘Children don’t speak properly any more’. There is also misunderstanding about language diversity in society. Linguists challenge these assumptions, ‘Well, it’s not quite like that’. Analysing people’s beliefs about language, or ‘folk linguistics’, is important for education and for our common understanding about how language works. One of the most enduring myths is the Tower of Babel
