Course Description

This seminar investigates the development of the English language from its earliest roots – the Indo-European language family via developments leading towards the creating of Old- Middle-, Early Modern-, Late Modern- and Present Day English. To do this, we will investigate the cultural, historical and societal background in the respective eras, and changes that influence the development of language and see how they influence phonetics, phonology, morphology, lexicon, syntax and pragmatics of the language over time. In the class, we will apply this knowledge in textual work in the class. Introduction to Linguistics I and II should be completed when you attend this course.
To complete this class, the lecture (154141) needs to be combined with one of the Übungen (154142-154144).

Course Requirements

Evaluation is by a portfolio of two in-class tests during the term.

Reading List

The course reading is Kohnen, Th. Introduction to the History of English. Frankfurt: Peter Lang
