Course Description

Linguistic practices are inherently social. To understand what language is, we also need to understand how and why it is used. This course offers an introduction to the field of sociolinguistics, the study of the relationship between language and society. We explore how language use is shaped by different social factors such as identities, media, and language attitudes. The course draws on a range of social contexts, exploring sociolinguistic landscapes around the world.
