On the linglab podcast we’ve talked a lot about the research people are doing in sociolinguistics, but we really haven’t defined it for people who don’t know what that word means. On this episode I talk with seven sociolinguists about how they define sociolinguistics, generally and for themselves. Their answers are just as diverse and nuanced as the field itself and they reveal why it is important to have larger more inclusive conversations about language.
Featuring: Jon Forrest, Ari Janoff, Jordan Holley, Caroline Myrick, Joel Schneier, Eric Wilbanks, and Dr. Walt Wolfram.
