Summary:   I posted a request a couple of weeks ago for suggestions on a
recent sociolinguistics/TESL text. I wish to extend thanks to the
following for their suggestions and comments:

Feng-Ling Margaret Johnson
Andreas Schramm
Dorine Houston
Julie Whitlow
Gayle Nelson
Patricia McCoy
Ben Larson
Robert Bayley
Janet Benger

I appologize for any name I may have left out.

The popular choice for such a text was "Sociolinguistics and Language
Teacing", C.U.P. by S. McKay and N. Hornberger. The most recent
edition is 1996.

The next popular choice was "Sociolinguistics and TESOL", 1989. by N.
Wolfson (the text I used last year). It was still recommended in spite
of the date of the most recent edition - 1989.

Other texts recommended were:

Culture Bound: Bridging the Cultural Gap in Language Teaching." By J.
Merrill Valdes

Lost in Translation: A Life in a New Language." By E. Hoffman

Hunger of Memory." By R. Rodriguez

"The Multicultural Classroom." 1992. By P. Richard-Amato & M. Snow

"An Introduction to Sociolinguistics." By R. Wardhaugh.

Once again, thanks to all who responded to my request.
