Does anyone know of any literature on the subject of the 'educated speaker'?
The term occurs frequently (e.g. specific variants of English are described
as typical of the usage of an educated speaker), but I've come across very
few attempts to define the term (in fact the only one I've come across is
the controversial one by John Honey in Language is Power). I'd be grateful
for references to any literature on the topic (or just any opinions).
