Course Description

ENG 201
Development of the English Language

This course examines the development of the English language, from its Anglo-Saxon roots to its modern American dialects. We will also explore the larger political and cultural functions of language, including the role the English language played (and plays) in the development of English and American identity, its use in the project of colonization, and the way language intersects with constructions of class, race, and gender.
