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.

Really good book in the area of sociolinguistics. Covers all aspects of the discipline and can be used with the reader (purchased and reviewed the reader also).

Required reading in Linguistic module 'Sociolinguistics' but extremely useful resource for other areas as one can apply learning. covers areas in variation/language attitudes/multilingualism and gender.
Useful for practical application in teaching etc. and for academic research or if you are interested in the area for a general read.

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.

Book arrived shortly after I ordered. In a really good condition. A really good book on introducing sociolinguistics. Gives you the basic yet necessary theories and concepts on it.

I needed this book for my course at university, and it's definitely delivered. It covers all the basic topics of sociolinguistics.
