|Institution:||University of Pennsylvania|
|Abstract:||The first quotation on the back cover of this book begins, "This long-awaited volume demonstrates that Eckert is the sociolinguist." Some people have expressed the view that this is an unusually strong statement. Since I wrote it myself, I am faced with the clear choice in this review of defending it or apologizing for it.|
