Lectures against Sociolinguistics exposes the very serious limitations of sociolinguistics as we know it. Its twelve lectures critically examine the standard sociolinguistic ways of exploring several intersections of human linguisticality and sociality (variability, inter-ethnic and cross-sex communication, language-contact, and 'native'/'non-native' speech, etc.). In addition, this book outlines a linguistically and sociologically less naïve sociolinguistics. Dr. Singh argues against correlation and disguised culturism as sociolinguistics to undertake a more responsible and meaningful study of the intersection of human linguisticality and sociality.
