I was searching for some articles that would tell me what I needed to know about language attitudes, ideology, variation and standardisation in a nutshell last night. I typed some basic words in the Google box, and my hit was spot-on! This set of slides prepared by Professor Alicia Wassink (University of Washington) showed me the key concepts and readings in a nutshell. So I did not have to think hard about the next new blog post — enjoy the Wassink Sociolinguistics Slides!
