Description:
Sociolinguistics is an interdisciplinary linguistic course aiming at a better understanding of the nature of language, and at an understanding of the relations between linguistic and social structure by investigating the use of language in a social context of a speech community. It ranges from the study of the wide variety of dialects- any regional, social or ethnic variety of a language down to the analysis between the way men and women speak to one another. This vast field of inquiry draws on the research results of anthropology, dialectology, discourse analysis, social psychology and sociology of language.
