I was kindly offered the opportunity to give a guest lecture for one of Dr David Goldstein's classes via zoom on May 23rd, 2022. I decided to share some thoughts on the why-question of language change. How do linguists try to explain language change? Can there even be a right answer to this question? And what is my advice to newcomers? I enjoyed the experience and so I thought I'd share the recording publicly. You can watch the video here or you may watch the video directly below:



I would like to say thanks to David for inviting me. I'm also grateful to the four other attendees, Elisa, Tom, Klaus and Simone.
