Title: The Sociolinguistics of Identity
Edited By: Tope Omoniyi
Goodith White
URL: www.continuumbooks.com/search/default.aspx?SearchTypeID=1&SearchText=sociolinguistics&Imprint
Description:

Identity is a problematic concept inasmuch as we recognise it now as
non-fixed, non-rigid and always being co-constructed by individuals of
themselves, or by people who share certain core values or perceive another
group as having such values. This volume re-examines the analytical tools
employed in the sociolinguistic research of 'identity' in order to assess
their efficiency, establish the roles of language in the identity claims of
specific communities of people, and determine the place of identity in a
variety of social contexts, including work places and language classrooms.
It will be of interest to academics researching sociolinguistics, applied
linguistics and second language learning.
