New episode of angesprochen. The linguistic podcast: typography

angesprochen is a monthly series of interviews where we talk with linguists about their present research. In February 2015  Robert Schikowskiand Juliane Schröter talked to Jürgen Spitzmüller (UZH, German Department) about typography.

The way people talk says a lot about them - but what about their way of producing printed texts? In a life full of written communication such as e-mails and SMS, one may ask whether typography doesn't serve to express a similar range of social meanings as does our intonation when communicating orally.
