Societal Segmentation and Linguistic Variation: Class and Race. Language and Gender: English and English-Speakers. Cross-Cultural Studies of Language and Gender. Learning Language. Acquisition of Communicative Competence. Multilingual Nations. Bilingual Communities. Language and Institutional Encounters.
