Celtic and English Language - 爱丁堡大学

This programme offers you the opportunity to investigate the languages, literatures and cultures of the Celtic worlds alongside the linguistic study of the English language and its varieties. In Celtic, we work with the medieval literary tradition in Gaelic and Welsh (the most extensive in the whole of Europe), with the rich oral tradition recorded from the eighteenth century to the present day, and with poetry from the eighteenth-century golden age of Gaelic literature. We explore nineteenth- and twentieth-century responses to the rapid social, cultural, and linguistic changes in countries where the Celtic languages are spoken, and work with the writing, song, and media production emerging from the lively and varied contemporary cultural scene in Gaelic Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. Scottish Gaelic is at the heart of the study of Celtic at the University of Edinburgh, and at honours level, it is also possible to study modern Irish and the medieval Celtic languages. At all levels, we offer courses in language, literature, history, and culture, enabling you to build your programme by developing your own interests in particular areas, periods, and disciplines of Celtic studies. The study of English Language focuses on developing your knowledge and understanding of the principles of theoretical linguistics, the way we learn language, the regional and social variations of language in general, and of the English language in particular, and methods of communication. While developing your linguistic research techniques, you will examine the structure of spoken and written English, as well as the patterns of linguistic change as it has occurred in and beyond the UK. In your honours years you will specialise in your preferred areas such as Old English, dialects, world Englishes or the history of Scots.
