Hello. I'm wondering if anyone who follows this group at the moment is
working in sociolinguistics. If so, do you know of a group where there's a
bit more coverage of issues of language and society? I've been looking but
I haven't found one yet.

Also, I'd be grateful if anyone has any references for articles or papers by
Duranti, Gee and Tannen . I've heard interesting things about their ideas
with regard to language in part constituting social roles and settings rather
than being determined by them. Can anyone recommend any reading?

Thanks in advance.
