Directions in Sociolinguistics: The Ethnography of Communication
	
Editors
John Gumperz, University of California, Berkeley
Dell Hymes, University of Virginia 
	
Directions in Sociolinguistics is a now classic collection of pioneering
essays by leading sociolinguists. The book proceeds from the assumption that
we may learn from language as interactional behaviour, illustrating both
advances in theoretical insights and changes in research interests. Taking
a speaker's communicative competence as a social as well as grammatical
fact, this volume is an invaluable compendium of articles by some of the
most eminent researchers in Sociolinguistics, and in the sociology and
anthropology of language.
	
Directions in Sociolinguistics has been out of print, but is now again
available through Blackwell Publishers exciting new print-on-demand service.

Language and Social Networks, 2nd Edition
	
Author
Lesley Milroy, University of Michigan
	
Social networks - those informal and formal social relationships of which
any human society is composed - are distinguished by their own patterns of
language use. Lesley Milroy is concerned with the manner in which patterns
of linguistic variation characterize particular groups (social and cultural,
geographic, male and female) within a complex urban community. First
published in 1980, Language and Social Networks has had a great influence on
the development of sociolinguistics. The second edition incorporates an
extensive new chapter reappraising the original research and discussing
other sociolinguistic work in the same paradigm.
	
Language and Social Networks (2nd Edition) has been out of print, but is now

Language, the Sexes and Society
	
Author
Philip M. Smith
	
Recent research has set out clearly enough how men and women use language in
different ways. But this research has frequently failed to identify the
social, psychological and linguistic processes that underlie sex differences
in language. Philip Smith adopts here a completely fresh approach. In
studying the various roles that language, speech and communication play in
relations between the sexes, he identifies and illuminates the processes
involved- such as stereotyping, social categorization and discrimination.
