授業の目的、概要等  
This course will explore the relation between language and society. Since language is used as a means of communication within a society, it carries social functions and is used to convey social meanings. In this course, we will learn sociolinguistic theories and discuss topics using examples from various languages, particularly the ones we know, English and Japanese. We will discuss questions such as: Why do men and women speak differently? What influences us to speak differently in everyday life? How do people use different languages in a multilingual community?
