Llanito dialect explored in new book about diversity of language

The Rock's "llanito" dialect is one of the topics explored in a new book celebrating the diversity of language.

"The Babel Message: a Love Letter to Language", by sociologist Keith Kahn-Harris, delves into the question, "what makes a language?" - looking at examples ranging from Ancient Sumerian to Klingon.

GBC reporter, Christina Cortes, asked Mr Kahn-Harris about the unusual source of his inspiration.

"The Babel Message: a Love Letter to Language" by Keith Kahn-Harris will be available online from the 4th November.
