The course offers an introduction to the history of the English language from its origins to the present day. It explores the linguistic roots of English, the changes in pronunciation and loss of inflections, as well as the enormous expansion in vocabulary which characterizes the development of English. We will also consider the different varieties of English in evidence today and the similarities and dissimilarities between English and other Germanic languages. Among the difficulties encountered by ESL/EFL students are the English system of tenses as well as the discrepancy between spelling and pronunciation: these will all be dealt with in this series of lectures.

Please note: Currently, this course is expected to take place offline and in a synchronous mode on campus Neues Palais. However, the teaching form may be changed in accordance with the latest Covid regulations.
