Abstract:

This sociolinguistic study offers a new theoretical framework for
understanding the diffusion of language change within a
community. Advanced statistical analysis methods are used in
rigorously testing the supposed norm-enforcement effect of social
networks. Revisions to the social network model are proposed, allowing
the effects of various social factors operating simultaneously on the
individual to be considered in evaluating the process of resistance to
language change.
