Title: Directions in Directions in Sociolinguistics
Subtitle: The Ethnography of Communication
Written By: John Gumperz
Dell Hathaway Hymes
Description:

Directions in Sociolinguistics is a now classic collection of pioneering
essays by leading sociolinguists. The book proceeds from the assumption
that we may learn from language as interactional behaviour, illustrating
both advances in theoretical insights and changes in research interests.
Taking a speaker's communicative competence as a social as well as
grammatical fact, this volume is an invaluable compendium of articles by
some of the most eminent researchers in Sociolinguistics, and in the
sociology and anthropology of language.
