A sociolinguistics research site devoted to multilingualism, language learning and intercultural communication in a transnational world. The focus is on the way in which language intersects with consumerism, family life, globalization, tourism, identity, migration and social justice .
This site is about varieties of language that differ from the standard variety that is normally used in the media and taught in the schools. These include pidgins, creoles, regional dialects, minority dialects and indigenized varieties.
The LINGUIST List is dedicated to providing information on language and language analysis, and to providing the discipline of linguistics with the infrastructure necessary to function in the digital world. LINGUIST is a free resource, run by linguistics professors and graduate students.
