Up one level
ENE 3010: The Linguistics of English: Past, Present and Future (3 cr.)
In this course students first explore the major structures of English at all levels of language, from sound system through word formation to phrase and sentence--the present. Then they will briefly survey the development of English from a small, countrified off-shoot of the Indo-European family to its status as world language--the past. Finally they will investigate the current status of English as a world language--the future-- and the role of language policy in both core and periphery of the English-speaking world.
