Sociolinguistics deals with the social life of language, i.e., language in its sociocultural context. It is an interdisciplinary branch of linguistics that looks at how our words and sentences are influenced by the society around us, for instance, how the accent or the dialect we use has been shaped by where we come from or which social status group we belong to. In this introductory course we will examine the role of language in a variety of social contexts, for example, in formal vs. casual situations, in multilingual settings, in situations requiring verbal politeness as well as in the construction of social identities. We will explore sociolinguistic theories and methods and we will cover the field’s foundations, advances and current debates.

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.
