230283 "Da Kine" Survey: Marginalized Languages in North America (S) (SoSe 2021)

Inhalt, Kommentar

The US Census Bureau has reported that over 500 languages are currently being spoken in the US alone. While we all know that English is the de facto national language, there is not one official national language to date. Other noteworthy languages spoken in the US include Spanish or Mandarin, languages that are official national languages elsewhere in the world.

There are, however, many languages that are not even considered languages by the majority of Americans. Often these are relegated to the status of dialects or even erroneously labelled "broken English" by non-linguists. One internationally recognizable example would be African-American Vernacular English (also known as Ebonics or Black English). Marginalized and misunderstood languages such as these are going to be our focus.

In this course, we will be looking at the speakers, histories, structures and usages of marginalized languages. We will also take a look at sociolinguistic debates surrounding language attitudes and standardization.
