NEW TITLE FROM BLACKWELL PUBLISHING

An Introduction to Sociolinguistics, Fourth Edition
Ronald Wardhaugh, formerly University of Toronto

Since it first appeared more than fifteen years ago, Ronald
Wardhaugh's An Introduction to Sociolinguistics has been an immensely
popular textbook for courses in sociolinguistics and the sociology of
language. Organized in four parts - Languages and Communities,
Inherent Variety, Words at Work, and Understanding and Intervening -
the book offers an accessible, comprehensive introduction to
sociolinguistics. Topics explored include language, dialects, pidgins
and creoles, codes, bilingualism, speech communities, variation, and
change. The book also covers words and culture, ethnographies,
solidarity and politeness, talk and action, gender, disadvantage, and
planning.
In the fourth edition, the text, further reading sections, exercises,
and references have been revised and updated to reflect new
developments in the field. In particular, the coverage of gender,
disadvantage, and planning has been considerably revised and extended.
