Workshop on English variants

British English vs. American English: Untangling the Differences
March 29 at 5 pm
Finnbrit Society
Fredrikinkatu 20 A 9
The Scottish Room

What are the differences between British English and American English? When you work on a text requiring one or the other, what rules do you apply?

Ian Mac Eochagáin and Albion Butters will lead a workshop on the differences and similarities between Englishes and the rules for applying them to various texts. Albion will examine the challenges we face when working with varieties of English in academia, and Ian will look at some less obvious ways in which both varieties are converging and diverging. The discussion and group tasks will encourage the participants to share their knowledge and experience as well.
