Review quote

"A landmark event. It signifies the dramatic growth of sociolinguistics over the past several years and the level of interest it now attracts....No one is in a better position to write a glossary of the field, and no one can match Trudgill's lucid, readable style."--Walt Wolfram, North Carolina State Universityshow more
