Key features include: Discussion of language in relation to various aspects of identity, such as those connected with nation and region, as well as in relation to social aspects such as social class and race. ; A chapter on undertaking research that will equip students with appropriate research methods for their own projects ; An analysis of language and identity within the context of written as well as spoken texts. With its accessible structure, international scope and the inclusion of leading research in the area, this book is ideal for any student taking modules in language and identity or sociolinguistics."--Publisher's website.
