Book Information

   

Title: The Sociolinguistics Reader Volume 1: Multilingualism and Variation
Description:

This two-volume text presents a state-of-the-art account of the discipline
in the closing years of the twentieth century. The books chart the
liveliest areas in contemporary sociolinguistics: variation,
multilingualism, gender, and discourse and include helpful introductions
and other aids to the student and specialist. Volume 1 explores the
macro-social aspects of sociolinguistics, covering cross-cultural
communication problems, the linguistic behavior of bilingual speakers,
language contact, the social psychology of language, variation, and the
mystery of linguistic change.
