Burgschmidt, Delattre, Doherty, Hawkins, Kirkwood, Konig, Nehls and =
Stein.I have written a lot of e-mails to the editors of many books on =

Subject: Language and Social Networks

Hello,

I'm a cultural studies student and I'm writing an essay on the influence of
social networks on language change. The only - and the most recent - source
I found was the work done by Lesley Milroy on a study in Belfast (GB) in the
late 1970s. I'm still looking for newer publications - without succeeding so
far. Can anybody give me any useful hints?

Regards,

Dominic Busch
