LING 11.09 The World's Englishes

Billions of people can speak and write some form of English. The course explores diverse Englishes around the world, taking up both linguistic and philosophical questions such as: Why is English so widespread? What are the structural differences among different Englishes? Why are some forms of English considered prestigious while others are viewed negatively? How are personal, ethnic, and national identities constructed through language practices? How are international power relations perpetuated and contested through language?

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:INT or TMV; WCult:CI

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
