From the Publisher“As in earlier editions of this book, Wardhaugh aims here to cover the main topics for an introductory course while keeping pace with contemporary research… Wardhaugh maintains an informed, critical and thought-provoking discussion throughout the book [and] incorporates some 130 new references, accompanying discussions of quantitative methodology, English as a global language and even ‘queer linguistics’… The inclusion of more recent scholarship, combined with his own transparency, make this latest edition an engaging introduction to sociolinguistics.” Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development
