This book provides a readable, up-to-date description of language variation in American English, ranging from regional to ethnic to gender-based variation. The authors describe dialect situations that range from historically isolated, rural dialects to developing urban ethnic varieties, as they consider the descriptive, theoretical, and applied ramifications of dialects in American society.
