Abstract:

In this new edition of the bestselling classic textbook, Martin Montgomery
explores the key connections between language and social life. Guiding the
student through discussions on child language, accent and dialect, social
class and gender, as well as a number of other topics, Montgomery provides
a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the function of language in
modern society.


This new edition includes:

-new sections on dialect levelling and estuary English; hip-hop and rapping
as anti-language and 'crossing' between Creole, Panjabi and South Asian
English

-new material on the Gulf war and the 'War on Terror'

-discussions on language in Internet usage and new technologies

-updated examples and references.


With detailed suggestions for further reading and practical work for each
chapter, An Introduction to Language and Society is the ideal resource for
students and teachers of Communication Studies and Language Studies.
