Abstract:

"This alphabetic guide introduces popular terms used in the study of language and society. A central topic within modern linguistics, sociolinguistics deals with human communication and the use of language in its social context. Written by a leading authority in the field, this glossary provides full coverage of both traditional and contemporary terminology, including the relatively new areas within sociolinguistics of sign language, gay language and cross-cultural communication." "Key features: an ideal companion to courses in sociolinguistics, language variation and change, dialectology, English language and language and gender; contains illustrations, dialect maps and a full bibliography; provides linguistic examples of the terms defined; and supplies numerous cross-references to related terms."--BOOK JACKET.
