Overview

In 1986 Ronald Wardhaugh provided the world of sociolinguistics with a popular and accessible textbook for introductory students. Keeping in step with this ever-changing field, this fifth edition has been thoroughly revised with 130 new and updated references and increased emphasis on issues of identity, solidarity, and power.

Extensive discussion topics and recommendations for further reading accompany each chapter and featured topics include: language dialects, pidgins and creoles, speech communities, variation, words and culture, ethnographies, solidarity and politeness, talk and action, gender, disadvantage, and planning. This classic in the field assumes little previous knowledge of linguistics, anthropology, or sociology and may be used at an introductory level or as a supplementary text in higher-level courses.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Comprehensively, the book provides a rich source of overviews of the field of sociolinguistics that will undoubtedly afford researchers and students in the area insightful knowledge evoking additional future dialogue and research." (LINGUIST List, December 2010)

Praise for Previous Editions

“The standard text in advanced undergraduate and introductory graduate courses” (Language)

“Among the various introductions to sociolinguistics, this one certainly stands out in its comprehensiveness… it offers a wealth of relevant and correct information” (Sociolinguistica)
