About this item

Corpus Approaches to Sociolinguistics illustrates how sociolinguistic approaches and linguistic distributions from corpora can be effectively combined to produce meaningful studies of language use and language variation. Three major parts comprise the volume focusing on: (1) Corpora and the Study of Languages and Dialects, in particular, varieties of global Englishes; (2) Corpora and Social Demographics, and (3) Corpora and Register Characteristics. The 14 peer-reviewed, new and original chapters explore language variation related to regional dialectology, gender, sexuality, age, race, ‘nation,’ workplace discourse, diachronic change, and social media and web registers. Invited contributors made use of systematically-designed general and specialized corpora, sound research questions, methodologies (e.g., keyword analysis, multi-dimensional analysis, clusters and collocations), and logical/credible interpretive techniques. Corpus Approaches to Sociolinguistics is an important resource for researchers and graduate students in the fields of sociolinguistics, corpus linguistics and applied linguistics.
