CODES AND CONSEQUENCES: Choosing Linguistic Varieties
Edited by Carol Myers-Scotton, University of South Carolina

Carol Myers-Scotton has edited a collection of essays that covers the
choice of one style of English over another in everything from Bible
translations to "surprise in poetry" to supervisor-worker interactions
on the automobile assembly line. An important theme developed to
varying degrees in these papers is the notion that speakers and
writers, as rational actors, exploit the unmarked-marked opposition
regarding audience expectations so as to convey messages of
intentionality charged with social or psychological import.
