English

Participants will acquire knowledge about different varieties of English and reflect on the problems of defining and classifying variation through the study of different models.

The lecture will look at varieties of English in terms of modelling differences. In addition to reviewing the presence and role of English in various parts of the world, it will look at typological similarities and differences between various „Englishes“. The content is therefore both descriptive and meta-descriptive, taking into account linguistic data but also the ways in which various scholars have tried to systematise this evidence, in order to create general „classifications“ of varieties.



Frontal teaching. Regular attendance is particularly recommended.

Final written exam, open questions
