You may look at some web pages for major British and American papers and see if you can see any differences. (учням пропонується підготуватися до наступного уроку з власними спостереженнями щодо наявності різниці удвох варіантах тієї самої мови. Можливо використання прикладів з інтернету – ролики, фрагменти ТВ-програм, відео епізоди, газетні статті тощо. Своїми спостереженнями учні повинні поділитися групі).

Students may be asked to prepare for this discussion for the next lesson. They can compare newspapers on the web, for example, The New York Times (www. nytimes. com) and The Guardian (>www. gurdian. co. uk) for differences.

                                                    Background information

George Bernard Shaw, the author of this quotation was born in Dublin, Ireland; in 1856. His family was too poor to send him to university, so he was self-taught. When he was in his early twenties, he moved to London worked as journalist. After hearing a lecture on nationalization, Shaw become interested in the socialist movement and soon joined various socialist organizations. Besides writing for and about socialism, he started to write plays, often with a political background. Major Barbara, Man and Superman and Saint Joan are some of the most famous. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1925. George Bernard Shaw died in 1950.

Although this lesson presents American English and British English as two distinct varieties of English, in reality there is enormous variation within each country – both regionally and socially, and in terms of register. The differences presented in this lesson are generalizations.

The ‘standard ‘English of Britain is generally taken as the speech of educated people who live in London and the south – eastern part of England (typified by ‘BBC English’), but this is only one of many regional dialects (which include London Cockney, Northern dialects, Midland dialects, South Western dialects, Welsh dialects, and Scottish, Cornish, and Irish dialects ).

It is more difficult to talk in terms of a ‘standard’ American English and there is a considerable number of dialect regions across the United States. United States English has also had a strong influence on Canadian English.

In addition to British and American, there are also many other varieties. There are distinct Australian dialects and New Zealand dialects as well as South Asian (including India and Pakistan) and South African varieties. There are also varieties in each of the African states where English is an official language (Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Uganda, Kenya, The Gambia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Ghana and Liberia).

People often ask which is the ‘correct’,’ best’, or ‘purest’ form. There is no answer to that question as each variety has evolved to meet the needs of the people who speak it. Some varieties have a higher status than other varieties, mainly because they are the varieties spoken by these that economic and/or political power.
