Course Description

In this course, we will shed light on the peculiarities of English pronunciation and spelling, word forms, grammar, and regional variation by examining its 15-century-long history, from humble beginnings as a dialect of Germanic tribes in northwestern Europe, through its tempestuous medieval history, to its development as a spoken and literary language.

(ONLINE – This event will not be recorded.)
