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 interested. Jeff Allen jhallen[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
