LIN 308 - Sociology of Language

1 semester, 3 Credits

Sociolinguistics examines how language allows individuals to project their identity, controls all social interactions, reveals ethnic and other cultural behaviors, and affects the law, medical encounters, and education. Bilingualism, dialects, gender issues, and paralanguage, including body motion also are discussed, as is the accuracy of using language data to uncover social divisions within communities. Same as SOC 308.
