Sociolinguistics is concerned with language in social andcultural context, especially how people with different social identities (e.g.gender, age, race, ethnicity, class) speak and how their speech changes indifferent situations. In this class, we will focus on these interrelationships,for example, how features of dialects (ways of pronouncing words, choice of words, patterns of words) cluster together to form personal styles of speech.
