Course Description

Today different varieties of English are spoken around the world as native, second, and foreign languages. This class will focus on "Postcolonial Englishes" (PCEs), i.e. varieties of English that emerged out of colonial and postcolonial contexts (e.g. Australia, Singapore, Nigeria, etc.), but we will also look into Englishes spoken in what has long been conceptualized as the “Expanding Circle” (viz. non-PCEs, e.g. the Netherlands, Korea, the Scandinavian countries etc.).
The class will introduce different approaches to and models of World Englishes, as well as deal with the (socio)linguistic characteristics of individual PCEs and non-PCEs. In addition to that, the course will provide an introduction to linguistic research methods and data collection.

Course Readings

The seminar will be largely based on:

  • Schneider, Edgar W. 2007. Postcolonial English. Varieties Around the World. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.
  • Schneider, Edgar W. 2011. English Around the World. An Introduction. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.
