Sociolinguistics is one of the central branches of modern linguistics and d eals with the place of language in human societies. This second edition of Introducing Sociolinguistics expertly synthesises the main approaches to th e subject. The book covers areas such as multilingualism, code-choice, lang uage variation, dialectology, interactional studies, gender, language conta ct, language and inequality, and language and power.
