Overview

Originally published in 1979, this volume was the first to attempt to apply the principles of social linguistics within a British urban community. Particularly influenced by the ideas of William Labov, it puts forward the view that linguistic expression in Norwich is intimately linked to the process of social stratification. The text is based on exhaustive research, including a large number of interviews with local residents. This research is translated into a clear and highly informative account, containing numerous carefully prepared maps, tables and diagrams. This is an important book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in sociology, linguistics, and interdisciplinary approaches within the social sciences.
