Mechanisms of Change in Urban Dialects: The Role of Class, Social Network, and Gender.
Milroy, James; Milroy, Lesley
International Journal of Applied Linguistics, v3 n1 p57-77 1993
In an analysis of social class, social network, and gender, arguments suggest that gender difference often occurs prior to social class in accounting for sociolinguistic variation. Data are presented to show how all three variables may help account for language variation and change. (54 references) (Author/LB)
