Global Englishes

Bachelor's level | 7.5 credits | Course code: EN1323

The course does not start as a freestanding course this academic year but can start within a program or a course package. Please contact the department for further information.

About the Course

The course explores and assesses the spread of English throughout the world, with emphasis on its geographical, economic, cultural and institutional importance. Why for instance did English become the global language it is today? In what ways has the "global" function of English influenced the development of language as such and in particular the range of linguistic diversity on a global scale? The course also has a clear focus on "Global English" as a variety of English. In this context the linguistic features, discourse practice and different areas of English usage are also explored.
