Routledge Language in Society
These accessible textbooks have been written for undergraduates with a sound practical knowledge of a modern language but who have little or no knowledge of linguistics or sociolinguistics. The books offer students the opportunity to explore for themselves a wide range of sociolinguistic issues relating to a language and its role in societies around the world.
Each book in the series provides the basis for a typical one-semester course. A review of current sociolinguistic themes is combined with a range of practical tasks exploring particular topics and a selection of readings illustrating the socio-political significance of language-related issues.
Features and benefits of these books:
* Comprehensive: provide the basis for a typical one-semester course
* Informative and practical: combine a review of current themes with graded exercises and relevant reading plus an index of terms
*Topical and contemporary: deal with current situations with the most up-to-date information
* Workbook character: encourages students to think and work for themselves
