Video on Direct/Indirect Language

RSA Animate is a wonderfully creative resource that provides sketch visualizations of interesting talks and lectures. I recently watched this one by noted linguist Stephen Pinker, discussing what we would refer to as “indirect and direct” language and social relationships. It is well worth a look and would perhaps be worth using in segments if you work with adult clients that have high-level social pragmatic issues. Summer food-for-thought!
