Language and Society (= sociolinguistics) is the study of how language serves and is shaped by society and its regional, ethnic, gendered, age-related etc. facets. We will look into the many varieties of English around the world, into the relationship between ethnicity and language, into how speakers of different gender, age or social class vary their language and focus on social media and its influence on language. In addition, sociolinguistic methods are introduced and applied in the context of small group projects.
