Please note that this course has started and enrolment is no longer possible.

We trace the history of the English language from its Anglo-Saxon roots through to its current status of 'glocal' language. We consider some key influences in its history - Shakespeare, the King James Bible, science, the British Empire, the dictionary age - and some dialect forms, from American English through to Liverpudlian 'Scouse'.
