Title: Arabic Sociolinguistics
Written By: Reem Bassiouney
URL: http://www.euppublishing.com/book/9780748623747
Description:

An introduction to the field of Arabic sociolinguistics

The first introduction to the field of Arabic sociolinguistics, this book
discusses major trends in research on diglossia, code-switching, gendered
discourse, language variation and change, and language policies in relation
to Arabic. In doing so, it introduces and evaluates the various theoretical
approaches, and illustrates the usefulness and the limitations of these
approaches with empirical data. The book shows how sociolinguistic theories
can be applied to Arabic and, conversely, what the study of Arabic can
contribute to our understanding of the function of language in society.
Introducing current theories and methods of sociolinguistics, with a
special focus on Arabic, topics include language variation and change,
gender, religion and politics.

This book is available in North America from Georgetown University Press.
