Ralph W. Fasold and Roger W. Shuy, Editors

Reviews
"Many linguists have moved beyond the study of language isolated from its use and have examined the interaction of linguistic rules with the pragmatics of language in context. At the same time, many scholars have taken a sociological approach to the structure of conversation and other communicative events. A number of anthropologists are adding language variation to their traditional interest in language in relation to cultural phenomena. Linguists who work in semantics, syntax, and phonology have also expanded their interests to include language variation."—From the Preface
