Abstract:

Just about everyone seems to have views about language. Language attitudes
and language ideologies permeate our daily lives. Our competence,
intelligence, friendliness, trustworthiness, social status, group
memberships, and so on, are often judged from the way we communicate. Even
the speed at which we speak can evoke reactions. And we often try to
anticipate such judgements as we communicate. In this lively introduction,
Peter Garrett draws upon research carried out over recent decades in order
to discuss such attitudes and the implications they have for our use of
language, for social advantage or discrimination, and for social identity.
Using a range of examples that includes punctuation, words, grammar,
pronunciation, accents, dialects and languages, this book explores the
intricate and fascinating ways in which language influences our everyday
thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
