This course focuses on so-called "nonstandard" varieties of English.

This course focuses on so-called "nonstandard" varieties of English, including ethnic and social varieties, English as a foreign language, and children's language, with the goal of understanding the linguistic underpinnings of such varieties and how these rules differ from prescriptive varieties. A secondary goal of the course is to view the language attitudes that are associated with nonstandard varieties. Students are expected to attend class regularly, to keep up with reading assignments, and to contribute to class discussion. Assessment is based on group discussions, two short papers (3-4 pages), and in-class assignments.
NOTE: As of March 16, 2020, this course continues as an online/remote course. Refer to Moodle for more details.
