This book will be of interest to a broad readership, regardless of whether they have a background in sociolinguistics, functional linguistics or genre theories. It presents an accessible “meta-language” (i.e. a language for talking about language) that is workable and usable for teachers and researchers from both language and content backgrounds, thus facilitating collaboration across content and language subject panels. Chapters 1 to 3 lay the theoretical foundation of this common meta-language by critically reviewing, systematically presenting and integrating key theoretical resources for teachers and researchers in this field. In turn, Chapters 4 to 7 focus on issues in pedagogy and assessment, and on school-based approaches to LAC and CLIL, drawing on both research studies and the experiences of front-line teachers and school administrators. Chapter 8 provides a critical and reflexive angle on the field by asking difficult questions regarding how LAC and CLIL are often situated in contexts characterized by inequality of access to the linguistic and cultural capitals, where the local languages of the students are usually neglected or viewed unfavourably in relation to the L2 in mainstream society, and where teachers are usually positioned as recipients of knowledge rather than makers of knowledge. In closing, Chapter 9 reviews the state of the art in the field and proposes directions for future inquiry.

In Understanding Sociolinguistics, the author focuses on language variation and change, traditionally the core elements of sociolinguistic study. This textbook provides a step-by-step introduction to the analytical framework and methodology of sociolinguistics and presents the discipline as an approach to doing linguistics by giving an overview of the theory followed by a corresponding emphasis on the practice of sociolinguistics. Understanding Sociolinguistics offers a comprehensiveoverview of the prevalent linguistic traditions of the past and shows how sociolinguistics, as pioneered by Labov in the 1960's, diverged from these. It discusses recent sociolinguistic developments and their impact on other linguistic domains, such as the study of language change and dialect contact. Sociolinguistic methodologies are clearly explained using examples from worldwide studies and citing the major works in this field. Factors of linguistic variability, such as class, style and ageare examined in detail and a chapter is dedicated to gender in which the findings and interpretations of gender differentiation in language are presented. The contribution of sociolinguistics to language change is examined with reference to socio-historical linguistics via the works of major scholars. Dialect geography and the formation of new dialects are also covered, taking examples from languages around the world. Each chapter includes exercise and further reading lists, making this book an indispensable guide for students of sociolinguistics.
