Epistemology, Methodology and Ideology in the Sociolinguistic Enterprise.
Fishman, Joshua A.
Language Learning, v33 n5 p33-47 1983
Discusses two opposing sociolinguistic theories, the Whorfian hypothesis and diglossia, which in turn help to illustrate the interdisciplinary nature of the sociolinguistic field, a field characterised by varied and ideological differences. One solution suggested for this kind of sectarian behavior is to build methodological diversity into the training of the young. (SL)
