Abstract:

Note: This title was announced previously by Edinburgh University Press,
for sale outside the U.S. and Canada. It is available for sale in the U.S.
and Canada by Georgetown University Press.

This introduction to major topics in the field of Arabic sociolinguistics
examines key issues in diglossia, code-switching, gendered discourse,
language variation and change, and language policies. It introduces and
evaluates various theoretical approaches and models, and it illustrates the
usefulness and limitations of these approaches to Arabic with empirical
data. Reem Bassiouney explores how current sociolinguistic theories can be
applied to Arabic and, conversely, what the study of Arabic can contribute
to our understanding of the function of language in society.

Graduate students of Arabic language and linguistics as well as students of
sociolinguistics with no knowledge of Arabic will find this volume to be an
indispensable resource.
