's review

really liked it

a beginners guide to socio-linguistics covering kinship, low/high speech (ie: formal language: tu vs vous), solidarity & politeness, african-american vernacular english (AAVE) pidgins and creoles, bilingualism, speech communities, variation, language maintenance, etc etc etc. You'll be a cunning linguist in no time!
