Social class, social capital, social practice and language in British sociolinguistics: unraveling historical and ethnographic complexities
This discussion will elaborate on the approaches to social class analysis and coding that I and others have pursued in studies of the elite/establishment sociolect of England over the past fifteen years. Changing social and political contexts as well as ‘class as an ideological construct’ within British society have ramifications for sociolinguistics and corpus work. We will look at several traditions of social class analysis and their potential contributions to sociolinguistic research. The importance of fine-grained historical and contextual understanding will be a recurring theme.
