The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes.

Description:

The Language, Society and Power Reader is the definitive Reader for
students studying introductory modules in language and society.

Highly user-friendly, this wide-ranging collection of key readings introduces
students to the thoughts and writings of major writers working within the area
of sociolinguistics. The Language, Society and Power Reader:

*is divided into ten thematic sections that explore the nature of language in
the following areas: power, politics, media, gender, ethnicity, age, social
class, identity and standardisation

*includes classic foundational readings from renowned scholars, but also
innovative and contemporary work from new writers in the area

*provides a wealth of editorial support for each section with detailed section
introductions and background information, issues to consider, annotated
further reading and suggestions for further viewing

*features a glossary with helpful definitions and information on how the
readings link to different areas.

While it can be used as a stand-alone text, The Language, Society and
Power Reader has also been fully cross-referenced with the new companion
title: Language, Society and Power, third edition (Routledge, 2011). Together
these books provide the complete resource for students studying modules in
language and society in English language and linguistics, media,
communication, cultural studies, sociology and psychology.
