Skrócony opis:

LINGUISTICS

The aim of the seminar LANGUAGE VARIATION AND STYLE is to provide a description and explanation of variables within the English language in terms of diachronic (historical), regional, social and stylistic aspects.

*************************************

LITERATURE

The class aims to introduce the students to one of the most recent movements in American Literature, New Sincerity, via a selection of short stories by some of the most accomplished contemporary writers: David Foster Wallace, Jonathan Franzen and Dave Eggers.

Over the course of our meetings we will be proposing sets of questions which will then form the backbone of our discussions on such topics as loneliness, consumerism and the aesthetics of commercial culture.

Pełny opis:

LINGUISTICS

• English as a World Language

• Language Variation in social terms (class, gender, age...), in terms of medium and channel of communication, field/domain of discourse and style/register.

• The History of English: Old English, Middle English, Modern English (phonological, morpho-syntactic, lexical and semantic change).

• Regional Varieties of English: British varieties, Scottish, Irish, American varieties, and other (post-colonial) varieties: Canadian, Australian, Indian, African and Caribbean.

• Case Study: Australian English

*******************************************************

Stylistic issues: textuality (cohesion/coherence), figurative language (metaphor, metonymy, simile...) and imagery (camera-work operations through language) will follow extensively as part of this course.

The classes are going to be organized around formulating and addressing sets of key issues that each of the stories puts forward and confronting them with the sets of crucial problems proposed by the course instructor.
