Abstract:

"Authority in Language" explores the perennially topical and controversial
notion of correct and incorrect language.

James and Lesley Milroy cover the long-running debate over the teaching of
Standard English in Britain and compare the language ideologies in Britain
and the USA, involving a discussion of the English-Only movement and the
Ebonics controversy. They consider the historical process of standardisation
and its social consequences, in particular discrimination against low-status
and ethnic minority groups on the basis of their language traits.

This Routledge Linguistics Classic is here reissued with a new foreword and a
new afterword in which the authors broaden their earlier concept of language
ideology.

"Authority in Language" is indispensable reading for educationalists, teachers
and linguists and a long-standing text for courses in sociolinguistics, modern
English grammar, history of English and language ideology.

Linguistic Field(s): History of Linguistics
                            Sociolinguistics

Subject Language(s): English (eng)

Written In: English (eng)
