Language is central to our humanity. Language and society are inextricably linked. Language unites; language divides. This course will develop your understanding of the social nature of language, providing insight into, among other things, the relationship between gender and language, language death and the art of persuasion.

This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
Summative feedback will be given through comments provided by the tutor with the graded essay and through reports associated with both the group project and, more generally, the Tutorial Assessment Mark. The feedback involved in all these assessments will also contain a formative element.
Formative feedback will also be provided through in-class discussion and individual consultation with tutors, both in the classroom context and during tutors' weekly office hours.
