Module assignments


In this class we will trace back the roots of the English language
starting with its genealogical origins as an Indo-European
and Germanic language, and then describe its development
through the major periods of Old, Middle and Early Modern English
up to Modern Day English.
All the major linguistic levels such as phonetics/phonology, morphology,
syntax and lexicon will be investigated by means of the bascic methods
and principles of Historical Linguistics, but also by analyzing original texts.
We will also take into consideration which external influences (e.g. Viking invasions,
Norman conquest) both contributed to and caused the specific changes the English
language underwent.
