Book Information


Title: Language and Identities
Written By: Carmen Llamas
Dominic Watt

Language and Identities offers new insights into how we use language to
construct, maintain and project multi-faceted identities. The collection
deals with identities at various social and personal levels. Using detailed
empirical evidence, the chapters illustrate how the multi-layered, dynamic
nature of identities is realised through linguistic behaviour. The
collection brings together over 20 specially commissioned chapters on a
range of topics around the language/identity nexus. It approaches these
topics from a range of perspectives, with contributions from
sociolinguists, sociophoneticians, linguistic anthropologists, clinical
linguists and forensic linguists.
