An Introduction Sociolinguistics and its Importance in Language Learning
It is a compact, comprehensive explication of the state of sociolinguistics today that crystallizes the topics of greatest interest to the field. This is a terrific book because it not only introduces students to the central topics currently on the minds of sociolinguists but demonstrates how quality sociolinguistic work is accomplished by highlighting timely and influential empirical studies.
Taken as a whole, the authors construct a literature review that reflects the pulse of today's sociolinguistics.
The final chapter is especially valuable because it apprentices students-in a welcoming and demystifying way--into qualitative methods of sociolinguistic inquiry. Because it captures the poststructuralist, social constructivist, qualitative turn to sociolinguistics today, this textbook stands to have a notable impact on current and future sociolinguistic scholarship.
The discussion draws on research from a range of fields and is accompanied by compelling illustrations and practical activities, making the text eminently suitable for introductory courses on the topic.
