This course introduces the students to varieties of English and the sociolinguistic contexts of each variety. The global spread of English has had widespread implications that affect millions of lives. As the language continues to spread, it also evolves into varieties with features that are distinct, but also shared. In this course, the students learn about the development of English varieties in the Inner Circle, Outer Circle, and Expanding Circle countries. The course offers opportunities for comparative and contrastive analyses of the features of these varieties. The course also explores issues concerning acceptability of and attitudes towards these varieties.
