The Five-Minute Linguist is a high-profile contest during which selected speakers are judged on their ability to present their research in a brief but informative way. These five-minute presentations are lively and engaging, delivered without notes on a stage without a podium, with audiovisual effects of the speaker’s choosing. The talks are directed to a nonspecialist audience, come from any subfield of the science, and display qualities that attract interdisciplinary interest.
