All courses listed here are courses that are part of a university's curriculum. Access to these courses is organized by the host university, the materials have been generated from VLC repositories.

The collection of these linguistic OER modules, where each module approximates the content of 90 minutes in class teaching were combined to the "Introduction to Linguistics" course EL100 for University of Rizal System in the the Philippines.

This course has been used - among others - at:

  • Essen University
  • Etvös Lorant University Budapest
  • Marburg University
  • Potsdam University
  • Tuebingen University
  • The Northern Caribbean University (Jamaica)
  • as a pMOOC since 2016

This course covers the history of the English language from its remote Indo-European origins (and even before) to the present day.

It provides substantial information about the English language at different periods and applies the main theoretical and technical concepts of historical linguistics, taking into account recent work in historical and general linguistics. To satisfy the needs of the current secondary school curriculum in many countries, its main focus, however, is Early Modern English. In order to successfully apply the main concepts of historical linguistics it is recommended to work through the VLC202 repository "Historical Linguistics" beforehand or in parallel with ELS111.

Special emphasis will be put on practical aspects, such as, reading and the analysis of texts taken from different periods of English.

This course introduces students to the basic concepts underlying the production, perception, and physics of speech. It is subdivided into three parts:

  1. A general survey of articulatory phonetics
  2. A short introduction to auditory phonetics
  3. A discussion of the most important physical aspects of speech and the most widely used experimental techniques.

Since many universities confine their curriculum to articulatory phonetics, this part is given maximum attention in the course.
