Is Old English a foreign language? This course aims to demystify the uncanny look and sound of the earliest, pre-Chaucerian stages of the English tongue. We will begin with some background and introductory practice. Then we will enter the world of our texts, trying to discern within their strange mix of Christian and Pagan ambience some likenesses of the most important features of the English language of today. Ten sessions.
Susan Pezzino, a former United States Fulbright Scholar in the field of English Grammar, holds an MA in Applied Linguistics and works as a professional language teacher and curriculum designer in Chicago.
The course will use as its text handouts provided by the instructor furnished to the students at cost of printing.
- There is no reading assignment for the first class.
