LNG 319 History of the English Language 3 SH

Students will study in depth the various influences, namely, political, religious, trade, etc., that the English language had to accommodate over the years. The course will also examine the ongoing changes in the phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics of the English language. Highly recommended for education majors who will be teaching writing.
