Language and Identities offers new insights into how we use language to construct, maintain and project multi-faceted identities. The collection deals with identities at various social and personal levels. Using detailed empirical evidence, the chapters illustrate how the multi-layered, dynamic nature of identities is realised through linguistic behaviour. The collection brings together over 20 specially commissioned chapters on a range of topics around the language/identity nexus. It approaches these topics from a range of perspectives, with contributions from sociolinguists, sociophoneticians, linguistic anthropologists, clinical linguists and forensic linguists.
