AMC Online | Lecture “American Accents: West Coast Accents”

Описание мероприятия

Do you think there is only one “American accent”? In fact there are more than one. During the lecture series “American Accents” you will learn more about how diverse American English is and how many accents it includes.

On December 14, in the final lecture of this series, you will finally be able to understand which American accent can be considered “standard”. Is it the language of Hollywood, Wall Street, or Midwestern prairies? Which accent should we learn? Discover how the California Gold Rush and Asian immigrants affected the development of American English.

This lecture series includes the following lectures:

1) November 23 at 6 pm — East Coast accents

2) November 30 at 6 pm — Midwestern accents

3) December 7 at 6 pm — Southern Accents

4) December 14 at 6 pm — West Coast Accents

About the lecturer: Alina Korshunova, Fulbright Alumna. Alina holds a bachelor’s degree in theoretical and applied linguistics from Pyatigorsk State University and a master’s degree in linguistics from Eastern Michigan University.
