History and Structure of the English Language

English 239

Usual Description

We will trace the development of the language from its Anglo-Saxon beginnings to the present, emphasizing the intersections between language, literature, and culture. We will also be concerned with changing attitudes toward language and the study of language, including such issues as correctness, dialect, dictionaries, and change itself. The course requires a consistent level of commitment; students should expect frequent assignments and exams. British, Pre-1700.
