Presumably a Lecture is normally on a specific subject and educational whereas a talk is a bit more informal and might cover different subjects?

That's a measure of how much trouble you're in.

 

A talk is one thing, but being lectured about it...

 

That's full Sunday name stuff ;)

A "talk" has been, in my experience, a general discussion about the person's body of work, questions and answers and a little bit of fun.

 

A "lecture" has been, again in my experience, where someone speaks about their profession etc. These are more common with the Astronauts at Autographica and some other evenings I have been to that have been by members of the forces both retired and active.

Ah yes,

 

A TALK... This is what you get when I am plodding along the Sands of my home town talking about everything putting the world to right.

 

A Lecture... This is what you get when you know nothing about camels and don't get on/off properly and if you pull my tail.. Be Warned. :no:

A talk is telling your other half they are not quite right about a certain issue and the Lecture is them telling you to be quiet as they are right in the first place :)

I always assumed it was just meant to sound posher to go with the event :smile:

 

cookiemonster is spot on.

 

Nevertheless, the "lectures" are very interesting and entertaining without being overly technical and are highly recommended.
