"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

contains a wealth of information for readers seeking definitions,
explanations and examples of the technical terms most frequently
