"A coherent, readily accessible summary of Labov's work."—Language

This classic volume, by a well-known linguist, constitutes a systematic introduction to sociolinguistics, unmatched in the clarity and forcefulness of its approach, and to the study of language in its social setting.

William Labov is Professor of Linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania and author of Language in the Inner City, also published by the University of Pennsylvania Press.
