讲座内容简介:

For sound pedagogical reasons, teachers of English as a Second or Other Language tend to concentrate on a small number of ‘ideal’ native pronunciations; in practice, these tend to be RP (Received Pronunciation) and Gen Am (General American). A central issue with this concentration, however, is that most native speakers of English do not use these accents. Not exposing students to this diversity may hinder their ability to communicate easily with the native speakers they meet, however. Bearing in mind  pedagogical necessity throughout, this presentation will have two concentrations. In the first, a brief discussion of the origins of the dialects of English will be attempted. Particular interest will be taken in the questions which exist over the nature and origin(s) of African American Vernacular English. The second part will involve a discussion of the Southern Hemisphere Englishes as a striking example of the extent to which knowledge of origin can help students make sense of diversity. Although Australian and New Zealand English will be given priority, we will also look briefly at the distinctive English of Tristan da Cunha, the most isolated inhabited place on earth.
