Product Description

Review

"This is an excellent, comprehensive examination of the field of language and
society...The writing is clear and concise; understandable for a novice student and
without unnecessary technical words. In addition, with the recently updated
information and examples in this edition (specifically hip-hop and rap language,
and material on the language of the 'war on terror') this could very well
provide new information to more advanced students. The author provides a fair
and balanced examination of many issues in the field of sociolinguistics."

--  Linguist List, June 2009

'... this book is very engaging, with fascinating in-depth examples.' - The Journal of Language and Society

Format: Paperback
This book will be useful to all A level English language students and also for undergraduates doing language or linguistics. Very indepth, good examples, useful terminology and quite good on theory.Not the most academic but 1st years will definately like this.
