Abstract:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

Across the social and behavioural sciences there has been an increased
interest in identity as a subject of inquiry. Despite this, there remain
questions to which researchers need to find answers and challenges to be
made to older paradigms of analysis in order to continue to push the
frontiers of knowledge in this research domain. Identity is a problematic
concept inasmuch as we recognise it now as non-fixed, non-rigid and always
being co-constructed by individuals of themselves, or by people who share
certain core values or perceive another group as having such values.

This volume re-examines the analytical tools employed in the
sociolinguistic research of 'identity' in order to assess their efficiency,
establish the roles of language in the identity claims of specific
communities of people, and determine the place of identity in a variety of
social contexts, including work places and language classrooms. It will be
of interest to academics and students working in sociolinguistics, applied
linguistics and second language learning.

'This book should be of great interest to students and researchers involved
in language and identity. It is intended for both scholars of
sociolinguistics and non-experts interested in these issues...The
sequencing of chapters and their internal cohesion is clear and
well-structured and allows the reader to pick specific chapters of
interest...well-written, well-structured and extremely accessible. It is a
valuable resource in the field of language and identity.'
