Abstract:

"The publication of A Glossary of Sociolinguistics is a landmark
event. It signifies the dramatic growth of sociolinguistics over the
past several decades and the level of interest it now attracts. Peter
Trudgill has been through it all - as a pioneer, a developer and an
internationally renowned authority. No one is in a better position to
write a glossary of the field, and no one can match Trudgill's lucid,
readable style." Professor Walt Wolfram, North Carolina State
University

"Peter Trudgill's slim volume, A Glosssary of Sociolinguistics,
contains a wealth of information for readers seeking definitions,
explanations and examples of the technical terms most frequently
employed in sociolinguistics and dialectology." LINGUIST (online
list)

This pocket-sized alphabetic guide introduces popular terms used in
the study of language and society. A central topic within modern
linguistics, sociolinguistics deals with human communication and the
use of language in its social context. Clearly written by a leading
authority in the field, this glossary provides full coverage of both
traditional and contemporary terminology, including the relatively new
areas within sociolinguistics of sign language, gay language and
cross-cultural communication.

Key features:
* An ideal companion to courses in sociolinguistics, language
 variation and change, dialectology, English language and language and
 gender
* Contains illustrations, dialect maps and a bibliography
* Provides linguistic examples of the terms defined
* Supplies numerous cross-references to related terms
