The course will combine the classical lecture format with a strong E-Learning component, and independent reading tasks. Reading material will be specified for each subtopic, and handouts, quizzes as well as exercises will be provided online so that students can monitor their own progress in the course of the term.
Assessment and permitted materials
Participants will be assessed on the basis of a written final test, online assignments and quizzes.
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
The objective of this course is (a) to raise our awareness that English, like any natural language, is a historical system that develops, changes, and maintains its properties as it is passed on among generations of speakers, (b) to learn how to approach and deal with early unfamiliar forms of English, and (c) to practice logical reasoning in linguistic reconstruction and the explanation of language change.
