Product Description

Review

‘A welcome introduction to sociolinguistics by a leading researcher in the field. Users will be inspired by the breadth and sweep of Meyerhoff’s treatment.’ – William Labov, University of Pennsylvania, USA

‘Authoritative, yet open-minded, innovative yet touches all the bases that need to be touched. It embodies a passion for sociolinguistics that I hope many readers will embrace.’ – David Britain, University of Essex, UK

‘A great book … easy to read and by far the most easily accessible introductory text for sociolinguistics.’ – Nanna Haug Hilton, Centre for Language and Cognition, University of Groningen

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By jameswho on 18 Aug. 2011
Format: Paperback
This book is a fantastic resource for anyone studying a sociolinguistics course, or even those just interested in it. There's a lot of information, but it's not overwhelming; Meyerhoff writes engagingly without skimping on depth. The tie-ins with the website and the reader are also great if you feel like reading a little more widely. Seriously recommended.

Great book for anyone studying English Language (specifically the module 'Language and Society'). Would definitely recommend buying it. Have also been told that it is useful to have not just for the first year of study but the years following also.
