About the Book :
Lectures against Sociolinguistics exposes the very serious limitation of sociolinguistics as we know it. Its twelve lectures critically examine the standard sociolinguistic ways of exploring several intersections of human linguistically and sociality (variability, inter-ethnic and cross-sex communication, language-contact, and 'native'/'non-native' speech etc.) In addition, this book outlines a linguistically and sociologically less na sociolinguistics. Dr. Singh argues against correlationism and disguised culturism as sociolinguistics, and invites the next generation of linguists and sociolinguists to undertake a more responsible and meaningful study of the intersection of human linguistically and sociality.
