Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The aim of the course is to acquaint students with multifaceted relations between language and society: the functioning of language in a given community, as well as its influence on the social structure. Students are familiarised with fundamental terms and research methods in this field. The discussed topics cover the areas such as: the relations between language and social factors (gender, social class, ethnicity, age), language diversity and identity, language ideologies and stereotypes. The course also covers the topics of social networks, with the role of language in focus, as well as the ethnography of communication. Special attention is given to the analysis of selected phenomena of English-language popular culture from both social and linguistic perspectives, including the significance of ideology and stereotypes. The examples of the above phenomena are discussed with regard to the film industry, e.g. Disney’s productions, as well as the music industry, starting from The Beatles and Bob Dylan, ending with Adele and Dizzee Rascal.

The course covers the following topics:

1. Language and society: scope of interest and major currents, research methodology and

representative sociolinguistic studies.

2. Major concepts: accent, dialect and standardisation, register and style, prestige and

stigmatisation.

3. Language diversity. Language shift and maintenance.

4. Language and social factors: social class, gender, ethnicity, age.

5. Speech communities: the ethnography of communication and social networks

6. Language attitudes and ideologies; power and identity.

7. Social and linguistic perspectives on popular culture (music and film) – language attitudes,

perception, ideologies:

a) Staged performance: authenticity, stylisation, identity

b) English-language varieties in music – analysis of selected examples from the perspectives

of sociolinguistic theories

c) English-language varieties in films – linguistic stereotypes and attitudes
