This class is based on recent studies into dialectal variation of English, in particular, on two projects in which the Linguistic Engineering Team of Marburg University developed the interactive software in conjunction with the universities of Freiburg, Regensburg, and Kapstadt (Project: Varieties of English) and the University of Pennsylvania (Project: Atlas of North American English). Among others, we will discuss: - how dialects can be studied and classified, - what type of transcription systems can be used, - in what way English dialects may differ phonologically, - to what extent dialects are morpho-syntactically different, - how dialectal differences emerge, - how dialect maps can be constructed.
