Sociolinguistic Argumentation

The module provides hands-on experience with a range of approaches to the study of language in social life, such as the ethnography of communication, interactional sociolinguistics, the sociology of language, and quantitative sociolinguistics. Critical attention is given to relevant social theory and to theoretical and applied issues arising from multilingualism in SE Asia, such as the institutional management of linguistic diversity, the social and educational implications of multilingualism for individual and society, language and culture, the effects of social factors on variation, and language contact and change in relation to language shift and maintenance.
