It's fun to look at beginning of an entire field of knowlege...Labov's work remains current; although the science is out of date, the social implications of language, class, and race are just as impressive as I imagine they were when he published the work. Unfortunately, this is not one of his most accessible works, as it's a scholarly work dealing in large part with statistics.
