Abstract:

Linguistics is important. An understanding of linguistic principles is as
essential to the layperson as it is to the language scholar. Using concrete
examples from politics, law, and education, this book shows how people
misconceive language every day and what the consequences of misconceptions
can be. Since the meanings of words are often fuzzy at best, this volume
argues for a flexible approach to meaning and definitions, and demonstrates
how this approach can help us understand many conflicts. It is an
alternative way of viewing and doing sociolinguistics.

"Language Misconceived: Arguing for Applied Cognitive Sociolinguistics"
offers many specific suggestions and guidelines for approaching a
linguistic project. The ideas expressed in this book have been class tested
for several years. Students enthusiastically appreciate the connections
drawn between linguistics and real-life problems. The goal is to help
students of sociolinguistics avoid pitfalls that may inhibit research.

"Language Misconceived: Arguing for Applied Cognitive Sociolinguistics" is
intended primarily for graduate and Ph.D. students of linguistics,
especially those interested in applying linguistics to fields like
politics, law, and education. It may also be recommended to seasoned
linguists as well as researchers in communication, sociology, psychology,
and education.
