AI: Is It a New Frontier for Linguistic Justice?   

The widespread discussion of AI seems largely focused on its dangers and drawbacks, whether warranted or not. This study group will look at AI from a linguistic angle, exploring how the systems work with the key elements of language and language variation (sounds, words, sentences, meaning). We will examine the design, development and management of Chat GPT and other systems through the lens of linguistic justice. The basis of AI systems does not include all varieties of English, so this issue requires careful analysis. This perspective will allow participants to form a balanced view of the strengths and weaknesses of AI through an understanding of the linguistic principles in its development and use.

Alice Horning retired from teaching writing and linguistics at Oakland University and has been teaching for OLLI since 2020.
