Subject: language and society text
Take a look at Ralph Fasold's books that came out in the 80s. One is
titled "The sociolinguistics of society" (1984) Basil Blackwell.
The other is entitled "The sociolingustics of language". I can't
remember the exact year, but it was also published through BB.
The interesting thing with these texts is that he wrote them to be
textbooks and actually created a whole series of questions for tests and
quizzes. All you need to do is write to him at Georgetown and ask him
for the Mastery Question diskette for these two books and he will send
the tests to you. He mentioned this set of tests in the introduction of
one of the books.
Also FYI. I have translated these questions into French for a
set of beginning and advanced Sociolinguistics courses that I developed
and taught at the SIL school in France.
I can find Fasold's address at Georgetown Univ. if anyone is
