Book Information


Title: The Routledge Sociolinguistics Reader
Edited By: Miriam Meyerhoff
Erik Schleef

Both a companion to Introducing Sociolinguistics, Miriam Meyerhoff’s
bestselling textbook, and a stand-alone Reader in sociolinguistics, this
collection includes both classic foundational readings and more recent
innovative articles.

Intended to be highly user-friendly, The Routledge Sociolinguistics Reader
includes substantial section introductions, annotated further reading, a
reader’s guide on how to use the book and an introductory chapter providing
advice on how to undertake qualitative and quantitative research. This
introduction is supplemented by exercises focusing on data handling and

The Reader is divided into six sections and each section is thematically
organised. Each reading is accessible to beginning students of
sociolinguistics but the entire selection is assembled to also help
advanced students focus on themes, principles and concepts that cut across
different researchers' work. Beginning and advanced students are supported
by Content Questions to assist understanding of essential features in the
readings, and Concept Questions which help advanced students make
connections across readings, apply theory to data, and critically engage
with the readings. A companion website supports and connects the Reader and
textbook with structured exercises, links to associated websites and video
examples, plus an online glossary.

The Routledge Sociolinguistics Reader is essential reading for students on
courses in sociolinguistics, language and society and language and variation.
