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



'Compulsive reading for both students and language-enthusiasts alike.' - Language International
