9780748638444: Introducing Sociolinguistics

Sociolinguistics is one of the central branches of modern linguistics and deals with the place of language in human societies. This second edition of Introducing Sociolinguistics expertly synthesises the main approaches to the subject. The book covers areas such as multilingualism, code-choice, language variation, dialectology, interactional studies, gender, language contact, language and inequality, and language and power. At the same time it provides an integrated perspective on these themes by examining sociological theories of human interaction. In this regard power and inequality are particularly significant. The book also contains two chapters on the applications of sociolinguistics (in education and in language policy and planning) and a concluding chapter on the sociolinguistics of sign language. New topics covered include speaking style and stylisation, while current debates in areas like creolisation, globalisation and language death, language planning, and gender are reflected. Written collaboratively by teachers and scholars with first hand experience of sociolinguistic developments on four continents, this book provides the broadest introduction currently available to the central topics in sociolinguistics. Features: * Provides a solid foundation in all aspects of sociolinguistics and explores important themes such as power and inequality, sign language, gender and the internet * Well illustrated with maps, diagrams, inset boxes, drawings and cartoons * Accessibly written with the beginner in mind * Uses numerous examples from multilingual settings * Explains basic concepts, supported by a glossary * Further Reading lists, a full bibliography, and a section on 'next steps' provide valuable guidance.

Recensione:

This is an excellent book, especially for undergraduate students. The information is presented in a 'digestible' form, and the book isn't as constrained by the more traditional US or UK approaches to sociolinguistics and is therefore more applicable to other cultures. -- Dr Heinz Kreutz, Monash University The book covers all of the main areas of sociolinguistics in a highly accessible and engaging way. It is also clearly written and informative, with up-to-date examples and material. The accessibility and clarity of this volume mean that it is ideal for students new to the subject. At the same time, it is sufficiently detailed and theoretically driven to allow more advanced students to use it as a resource/reference when completing specialised projects or applied assignments. Finally, the real-life examples and practical exercises are both a means of engaging students and an extremely useful teaching/seminar aid. -- Dr Karyn Stapleton, University of Ulster at Jordanstown This is an excellent book. It is very comprehensive, covering topics which are not covered or are marginalised in 'traditional' sociolinguistics texts. -- Dr Mark Sebba, Lancaster University I'm using your textbook in my undergraduate sociolinguistics course and it's wonderful. It's a pleasure to have a book that not only reads well but has international coverage and an approach that I agree with. -- Professor Penelope Eckert, Stanford University The book provides outstanding coverage of the major dimensions of sociolinguistics. In all cases, core information is presented in a lucid way that makes the textbook perfect for an introductory course. The use of numerous research examples serves to illustrate methodological approaches related to each dimension of sociolinguistics as well as major findings. Furthermore, examples are drawn from sociolinguistic research throughout the world, which makes this a wonderful survey text. Students are provided with rich information about a variety of contexts, deepening their knowledge of language situations worldwide. The numerous figures and maps are also excellent. -- Dr Francis M. Hult, University of Texas at San Antonio This is a fabulous book and I have used it now for two academic years. It is a great compilation of all the classic sociolinguistic studies over the past 40+ years. It is very accessible for students, including the layout, the funny cartoons and the summary sections at the end of each chapter. Students tell me that they like it very much. --Dr Cathy Finlay, Queen's University Belfast
