Introducing Sociolinguistics by Rajend Mesthrie

Book Description

Offering a synthesis of various approaches to sociolinguistics, this work covers areas such as code-choice, language variation, dialectology, gender, multilingualism, language contact, language learning, interactional studies, language inequality, and power. At the same time, the book provides an integrated perspective on these themes by examining sociological theories of human interaction. It also contains two chapters on the applications of sociolinguistics, and a concluding chapter on the sociolinguistics of sign language.
