About this item

Focusing on urban youth culture and language crossing, this foundational volume by Ben Rampton has played a pivotal role in the shaping of language and ethnic identity as a domain of study. A vital precursor to later developments in sociolinguistics such as linguistic ethnography and superdiversity, it includes detailed analyses of spontaneous speech data, and integrates the discussion of particular incidents with theories of discourse, code-switching, social movements, resistance and ritual. Now a Linguistics Classic and with a new preface which sets the work in its current context, this remains key reading for all those working in the areas of applied linguistics and sociolinguistics.
