Varieties of Variation in a Very Small Place: Social Homogeneity, Prestige Norms, and Linguistic Variation.
Dorian, Nancy C.
Language, v70 n4 p631-96 Dec 1994
Discusses the assumption that linguistic heterogeneity reflects social heterogeneity. The article examines a challenge to this assumption evident in the Gaelic-speaking communities of East Sutherland, Scotland, with homogeneous populations showing well-established patterns of language variation that do not correlate with socioeconomic status.
