Awareness and Control in Sociolinguistic Research


Add your own review!

Overview

The topic of awareness and control is an elephant in the room in sociolinguistic research. To what extent are speakers aware of sociolinguistic variables? Are there different types or levels of awareness? Is 'control' of these variables a conscious or unconscious process, or is it some combination of the two? Are the variables we are aware of necessarily those we control, and vice versa? The extent to which speakers are aware of sociolinguistic information and use it strategically may drastically affect our understanding of the role that sociolinguistic cues play in the development of structural categories. This volume constitutes the first concerted effort to understand the nature of awareness and control using all the methodological and theoretical tools at our disposal. The contributors employ a variety of perspectives to address the relationship between awareness and control in sociolinguistic research.

Reviews

'In this important volume Anna Babel brings together scholars drawing on diverse methodologies (ethnographic, experimental, elicitation/interview) to demonstrate how themes of awareness and control that have been a central concern in the history of sociolinguistics have wide-reaching implications for integrating sociolinguistic research with sub-fields of theoretical and applied linguistics, and for interdisciplinary engagement with cognitive science, social psychology, and anthropology.'
