Abstract:

Designed for beginning undergraduates studying for degrees in English, this
textbook provides an introduction to a range of sociolinguistic theories and the
insights they provide for a greater understanding of varieties of English, past
and present. Drawing on both qualitative and quantitative approaches to
sociolinguistic variation, the book provides a systematic overview such topics
as:

- 'English' as a social and as a linguistic concept
- English speech communities
- Social and regional dialectology in relation to varieties of English
- English historical sociolinguistics, from Old English to late Modern English
- Sociolinguistics and change in English
- Outcomes of contact involving varieties of English
- English and language planning
- English, sociolinguistics and linguistic theory.

The book contains data drawn from studies of English as it is used around the
world. Throughout, there is an emphasis on facilitating a deeper understanding
of linguistic variation in English and the social, political and cultural contexts
in which speakers and writers of English operate.
