UMUrLing: Linguistic route through the city of Murcia and UMUrLing: Game: How do you say in…?

Schedule, Workshop

• UMUrLing: Linguistic route through the city of Murcia

This activity will show the linguistic path created by the Knowledge Transfer Group (GTC) MurLiNG in collaboration with the UCC+i of the UM.

It is a route that combines culture, science and tourism to offer an attractive and different experience through the streets of the city to its inhabitants and visitors. The tour reveals, for example, that the lexical heritage of Murciano is linked to its history, illustrious characters, gastronomy, culture, architecture, economy, other languages and, of course, water and climate. The union of all these elements has helped the Murcian to have his specific personality today.

GTC members will perform one or two microrrutas (depending on the demand of the audience) in the streets near the Campus of La Merced so that the public who wishes can live the experience of discovering from a scientific perspectivelinguistics the philological and lexical heritage that the city shows and hides in its linguistic landscape, for example: the Murcian vocabulary, century-old graffiti or the toponymy of its streets, which are only a small sample of the linguistic heritage of the region.

• UMUrLing: Game How do you say in?…
Among the people who visit the stand will be the game “How do you say in…? It is a fun way to know the variety of the Murcian vocabulary where each participant will spin a roulette wheel and guess how the selected object is named in Murcia or in one of the regions of the Region. The people involved will be given a little souvenir
