Title: Language and Social Networks, 2nd Edition
URL: http://www.blackwellpublishers.co.uk/
Description:

Social networks - those informal and formal social relationships of which
any human society is composed - are distinguished by their own patterns of
language use. Lesley Milroy is concerned with the manner in which patterns
of linguistic variation characterize particular groups (social and
cultural, geographic, male and female) within a complex urban community.
First published in 1980, Language and Social Networks has had a great
influence on the development of sociolinguistics. The second edition
incorporates an extensive new chapter reappraising the original research
and discussing other sociolinguistic work in the same paradigm.
