Title: The Sociolinguistics of Globalization
Written By: Jan Blommaert
Description:

Human language has changed in the age of globalization: no longer tied to
stable and resident communities, it moves across the globe, and it changes
in the process. The world has become a complex 'web' of villages, towns,
neighbourhoods and settlements connected by material and symbolic ties in
often unpredictable ways. This phenomenon requires us to revise our
understanding of linguistic communication.

In The Sociolinguistics of Globalization Jan Blommaert constructs a theory
of changing language in a changing society, reconsidering locality,
repertoires, competence, history and sociolinguistic inequality.
