In Honour of John Gumperz
This virtual issue is dedicated to the extraordinary influence of John Gumperz’s work across sociolinguistics, from dialectology and bilingualism to interaction and linguistic anthropology. The selection of articles here, taken from past issues of the Journal of Sociolinguistics, attests to the foundational and lasting impact of his contributions, which continue to shape sociolinguistic theory and contemporary debates today.
Language and the City
The theme of this virtual issue—Language and the City—parallels the theme of the 2012 Sociolinguistics Symposium. This selection of work from the Journal of Sociolinguistics reminds us of the many ways in which we understand the sociology of cities through the close study of language.
To mark the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the NWAV (New Ways of Analyzing Variation) conference, the Journal of Sociolinguistics has assembled a free virtual issue that highlights a few key contributions to our understanding of sociolinguistic variation, all published in the Journal of Sociolinguistics starting with its first issue in 1997.
