About

Learn how sociolinguists explore the relationship between language and the expression of personal, social and cultural identity with An Introduction to Sociolinguistics - Accents, Attitudes and Identity at FutureLearn.

Overview

We all have preferred accents and ways of speaking, but what makes something ‘good’ or ‘bad’ English? On this course, you will explore where our attitudes to language come from, how they are formed, and what they tell us about society.

Key facts:

During An Introduction to Sociolinguistics - Accents, Attitudes and Identity at FutureLearn you will be introduced to a range of sociolinguistic research methods and learn what these methods tell us about our individual sense of identity. You will also study their impact on social factors like gender, social class, and national affiliation. Plus, you will determine the real-world implications of language attitudes on our society as a whole.
