As the UK's first Professor of General Linguistics, J. R. Firth influenced generations of linguistics scholars down to the present day. His innovative approaches to phonological theory (Prosodic Analysis), semantics (collocational analysis), and other aspects of language remain influential today, and if anything continue to grow in their impact. As a celebration of the 120th anniversary of his birth, and to mark fifty years since his death, there will be a day of talks and remembrances.
