Inhalt
Description:
Would you as a traveller in time be able to talk to Geoffrey Chaucer, who died 620 years ago? Would you understand his form of English, and he yours? And what about the author of Beowulf, for instance, who lived some further 400 years before Chaucer? You would certainly have many words in common, and both the author of Beowulf and you, for instance, could understand the Old English sentence He swam west in storm and wind and frost. But then he (or she?) would have to explain to you that leode means 'people' (compare German Leute) and Chaucer would be puzzled by the word and concept of, say, the world wide web.
For all those with exploratory spirit and interest in the earlier stages of the English language but not necessarily with previous knowledge of them this guided tour will prepare the ground to venture on their own paths of discovery of the forms of the language from which modern English developed. You will find out about similarities and differences of Old English and particularly Middle English to modern English (and also to German), regarding sounds, words, grammar and meaning. At the end of the semester, you will be able to answer the questions asked at the beginning of this description in much more detail and you might actually be able to talk to Chaucer; given that a time machine has been invented by then. Master students are asked to contribute additional scholarly depth on the Old and Middle English language systems and issues of language change through their contibutions, in particular their oral presentations. As indicated above, knowledge of earlier stages of the English language is no requirement for participation in this course.
