The Media Dictionary of Sociolinguistics collects short, easily shareable examples of sociolinguistic theory. The Dictionary aims to be
- a resource for teachers and students of sociolinguistics (Hey, where can I find an example of…?”)
- a place for anyone to use sociolinguistic theory as a toy (Omg, why is Perd Hapley so funny? Maybe Dell Hymes has the answer…)
Entries are accompanied by a brief general explanation and maybe some resources for further reading. Submissions are welcome (tweet us @speechevents or email us firstname.lastname@example.org). Multiple entries on the same theme are welcome.
