This volume presents a selection of Peter Trudgill's major works since 1990 in the field of sociolinguistics. The book deals with a number of different but related topics. One theme is the role of English in the world, and the nature of standard English or Englishes. Another is language as a human issue, reflecting the author's concern that the results of sociolinguistic research should be made available to assist, wherever possible, with the solution of educational and other real-world problems.
