Language, Culture and Society (1402LHS)

Language, Culture and Society provides an introductory overview of the sociolinguistics of English-speaking societies, with a particular focus on understanding how language is enacted in social contexts and how social life is performed through language. The course begins by considering how language reflects social variables such as gender, social class and ethnicity. It then focuses on the use of English across social groups, including the analysis of register, speech functions, politeness, power and solidarity in interaction. Finally, it considers the place of bilingualism and multilingualism in English-speaking societies, and the reasons why some people 'code-switch' between languages when they interact.
