Abstract:

This book presents a critical synthesis of sociolinguistics that
centers on the study of language variation and change, and identifies
opportunities for future research.

Since the inception of sociolinguistics four decades ago, the
correlation of dependent linguistic variables has provided the
theoretical core of the discipline. This volume reviews the essential
findings that form its foundation and shows how empirical explorations
have made it the most stimulating field in the contemporary study of
language.

Sociolinguistic Theory discusses the linguistic variable and its
significance, crucial social variables such as social stratification,
sex and age, and the cultural purposes of linguistic variation.  This
second edtion has been updated to incorporate new findings and expand
on the discussion of communicative competence and developmental
sociolinguistics.

Lingfield(s):   Sociolinguistics
