Review

"In this revised and updated edition of his classic text, Wardaughbrings us a smartly revitalized presentation, including up to theminute, current advances in sociolinguistics. While AnIntroduction to Sociolinguistics retains its comprehensivecoverage and accessible style, it also presents students with acontemporary text that is sure to spark interest in thediscipline."
Alexandra D Arcy, University of Canterbury

"Wardhaugh has long provided teachers and introductory studentswith a clear yet challenging introductory textbook that is prizedby all who value broad understanding of the full scope ofsociolinguistic study. This latest edition once again ensures thatreaders are up–to–date in even the most rapidly advancing areas ofresearch, including language and identity and language and gender.In addition, it offers enhanced reader engagement through theinclusion of thought–provoking questions and hands–on exercisesgenerously distributed throughout each chapter. Wardhaugh has longbeen a staple in my introductory sociolinguistics classes, and thetext is now even more indespensible than ever."
Natalie Schilling–Estes, Georgetown University
