Title: American English
Subtitle: Dialects and Variation, Second Edition
Written By: Walt Wolfram
Natalie Schilling-Estes
Series Title: Language in Society
Description:

This book provides a very readable, up-to-date description of language
variation in American English, covering regional, ethnic, and gender-based
differences. It contains new chapters on social and ethnic dialects,
including a separate chapter on African American English and more
comprehensive discussions of Latino, Native American, Cajun English, and
other varieties. It includes samples from a wider array of US regions,
features updated chapters as well as pedagogy such as new exercises, a
phonetic symbols key, and a section on the notion of speech community.

The book is accessibly written for the wide variety of students that enroll
in a course on dialects, ranging from students with no background in
linguistics to those who may wish to specialize in sociolinguistics.
