Series Title: Advances in Sociolinguistics
Description:

This book examines the impact of globalization on languages in contact,
including the study of linkages between the global and local, and
transnational and situated communication. It engages with social theory and
social processes while grappling with questions of language analysis raised
by globalized language contact. Drawing on case studies from North America,
Europe and Africa, the volume makes three important contributions to
contemporary sociolinguistics:

* argues that concepts of scale and space are essential for understanding
contemporary sociolinguistic phenomena
* shows that the transnational flows and movements of peoples highlight the
problem and work of identity in relation to both place and time
* addresses methodological challenges raised by different approaches to the
study of globalization and language contact.

This cutting-edge monograph featuring research by renowned international
contributors will be of interest to academics researching sociolinguistics,
and language and globalization.
