Learning outcomes

The course aims at providing students with necessary knowledge to understand and analyze contemporary English language in its complexity and plurality, starting from the perspective of sociolinguistics. On completion of the course students will acquire knowledge of the phenomena that have led to a diversification of English into Global Englishes, English as Lingua franca, and African American English. They will be able to identify and analyze with a critical approach the features, functions and implications of these languages. They will also achieve a linguistic proficiency of English corresponding to C2 level in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

Program

During the course we will cover and discuss aspects related to the historical evolution of the English language, its spread and its geographical diversification. In the first part of the course, attention will be paid on phenomena of linguistic and cultural context and on processes of language change in the different contexts of use of the English language, including its role as a global language. Examples of different varieties of English will be analyzed and discussed in class. The second part will focus on the variety of African American, on its history and modifications within American society.

Main Topics of the course:
Key concepts in the study of English(es)
Models for understanding the spread of English
Language contact phenomena: hybridity in World Englishes, English-based pidgins and creoles
English in different areas of the world
English as a global language: English as a Lingua Franca
African American Vernacular English SEE READING LIST HERE BELOW ->

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
