Abstract:

Drawing on examples from a wide range of languages and social setting,
Sociolinguistics Around the World is the first single-volume collection
surveying current and recent research trends in international
sociolinguistics. With over thirty chapters written by leading authorities
in the region concerned, all continents and their respective regions are
covered. The book will serve as an important tool to help widen the
perspective on sociolinguistics to readers of English.

Divided into sections covering: The Americas, Asia, Australasia, Africa and
the Middle East, and Europe, the book provides readers with a solid,
up-to-date appreciation of the interdisciplinary nature of the field of
sociolinguistics in each area. It clearly explains the patterns and
systematicity that underlie language variation in use, as well as the ways
in which alternations between different language varieties mark personal
style, social power and national identity.

Sociolinguistics around the World is the ideal resource for all students on
undergraduate sociolinguistics courses and researchers involved in the
study of language, society and power.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics

Written In: English (eng )
