It also focuses on larger social concerns about language use, variety, and change; the relationship between spelling and pronunciation; the notion of dialect and variation across geographical and class boundaries; the arguments concerning English as an official language and the status of standard English; the role of the dictionary in describing and prescribing usage; and the ways in which words change meaning, as well as the manner in which English speakers have coined and borrowed


 This course introduces fundamental concepts, theories and practices in language studies with primary emphasis on the English Language. It deals about morphology, syntax, semantics, phonetics and phonology,  and also discusses new development in the study of language particularly the integration of computer or the internet in learning, teaching and doing research.
