Monday Scholars
English in America: A Linguistic History
12:30 - 2:00 pm
Oliver Wolcott Library
Mondays, June 19 - July 31, 2017
* We will not meet on July 3
Facilitated by Patricia Moore, Monday Scholars is a weekly series
 that meets in the library's Jamie Gagarin Community Room.
It's the best of online learning and classroom discussion. Each week,
a new lecture topic is watched and discussed. All you need to do
is come ready to engage your mind and participate in the discussion.

About the Course:
If you've ever been curious how words like "awesomesauce"
ever came to be, let alone made it into the Oxford English Dictionary,
 or if you've ever wondered why you say "firefly" and someone else
 calls the same insect a "lightning bug,"
English in America: A Linguistic History is for you!

There's an incredibly rich and colorful history behind American English.
A profoundly diverse assortment of cultures and heritages has influenced
our vocabulary, pronunciation, and grammar, and the language continues
 to grow and shift. From the dialects of the first colonies to the
 influences of various immigrant groups as well as
 today's technology, we'll learn and discuss them all.

Dr. Natalie Schilling is an Associate Professor
of Linguistics at Georgetown University.
She holds a doctorate in Linguistics and bachelor's in English from
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a master's degree in
English from North Carolina State University. Dr. Schilling has appeared
on a number of NPR programs, and has authored and contributed to
many articles in national publications. She specializes in the study
of language variation and change in American English dialects.

All Oliver Wolcott Library events are free and open to the public.
Space is limited. Registration is required.
