Title: Language and Ethnicity
Written By: Carmen Fought
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521612913
Series Title: Key Topics in Sociolinguistics
Description:

What is ethnicity? Is there a ‘white’ way of speaking? Why do people
sometimes borrow features of another ethnic group’s language? Why do we
sometimes hear an accent that isn’t there? This lively overview reveals the
fascinating relationship between language ethnic identity, exploring the
crucial role it plays in both revealing a speaker’s ethnicity and helping
to construct it. Drawing on research from a range of ethnic groups around
the world, it shows how language contributes to the social and
psychological processes involved in the formation of ethnic identity,
exploring both the linguistic features of ethnic language varieties and
also the ways in which language is used by different ethnic groups.
Complete with discussion questions and a glossary, Language and Ethnicity
will be welcomed by students and researchers in sociolinguistics, as well
as anybody interested in ethnic issues, language and education,
inter-ethnic communication, and the relationship between language and identity.
