From this early research, several lessons can be learned: linguistic variables (and variants) can be identified and quantified; values for linguistic variables can be correlated with non- linguistics ones (for instance, age, sex, social class, and so on); a change in progress can be shown through the study of variation; patterns of social stratification can be identified; and most importantly, we can explain language change based on the role of these non-linguistic variables. Labov's research was based on speech samples collected from a random sample of men and women representative of different social class backgrounds, ethnicities, and age. In the following part of this paper, it will be focussed on the use of (1) language (2) dialects, (3) language variation, (4) social stratification, (5) register. It’s obvious that differ-ent branches of sociolinguistics have had considerable impact on second lan-guage teaching.

We argue that the perplexing nature of the historical split can be partially accounted for in this data, as the frequency of co-occurring phonetic environments is notably different in foot than in strut, resulting in cumulative effects of co-articulation. This means that, for a speech community without the split, there remains an effect in the expected direction: strut vowels are lower than foot vowels in the vowel space. Introduction.

Using data from Derry/Londonderry English, gathered with the objective of answering the question of whether ethnicity matters in sociolinguistic terms, it examines the relative importance of a set of social factors for language variation. or ought to have, linguistic objectives. To understand what ethnography of speaking or ethnography communication is all about, it is necessary to discuss the following concepts. First let us talk about units of interaction within a speech community. The past decades have seen many linguists, psychologists, and educationalists involved in the area of language learning and language teaching, while this pa-per will deal with it from sociolinguistic point of view. Our purpose in this chapter is to see how far it is possible to describe the relations of language to society in terms of ‘global’ linguistic categories such as ‘language X’ or ‘dialect Y’ and global social categories like ‘community Z’. Social stratification will determine the form of language use by the speakers who involve in the interaction. It is also a function of all the other components of speech situation. Uses recordings of informal conversations as its data (and occasionally reading exercises to examine the role of formality in Contemporary Linguistics an the foot and strut lexical sets in minimal-pair production and judgement tests, vowel height is correlated with socio-economic status: the higher the social class, the lower the strut vowel.

Sociolinguistics focus on the social spaces that languages occupy – a topic that the field of linguistics typically kept in the background. not only in relation to phonological variables (e.g., use of t as apposed to th), but also grammatical variables (omission of third person -s and multiple negation, for instance). Innovative Sociolinguistics Sociolinguistics Has its roots in dialectology Emerged in the 1960s partly as a result of inadequate methods in earlier approaches to the study of dialect. Most speakers use a variety of different dialects or styles in different situations. It is shown how the development of a vernacular, popularly called a dialect, into a language is intimately related to the development of writing and the growth of nationalism.
