Since its initial publication, English with an Accent has provoked debate and controversy within classrooms through its in-depth scrutiny of American attitudes towards language. Rosina Lippi-Green discusses the ways in which discrimination based on accent functions to support and perpetuate social structures and unequal power relations.

This second edition has been reorganized and revised to include:

  • new dedicated chapters on Latino English and Asian American English
  • discussion questions, further reading, and suggested classroom exercises,
  • updated examples from the classroom, the judicial system, the media, and corporate culture
  • a discussion of the long-term implications of the Ebonics debate
  • a brand-new companion website with a glossary of key terms and links to audio, video, and images relevant to the each chapter's content.

English with an Accent is essential reading for students with interests in attitudes and discrimination towards language.

Review:

"This second edition of English with an Accent exceeds the high standard of research excellence that Lippi-Green first displayed in 1997. This new book introduces keen insights about language, justice, discrimination, and the human condition in America." - John Baugh, Margaret Bush Wilson Professor in Arts and Sciences, Washington University in St. Louis, USA

 "English with an Accent is an encyclopedic, cutting-edge update of Lippi-Green's classic text on language subordination. Hard-hitting and thought-provoking, this is an essential work." - Jane H. Hill, Regents' Professor of Anthropology and Linguistics (Emerita), University of Arizona, USA

"This new edition is breaks new ground again, providing updates related to politics, Internet usage and the classroom....It will be the go-to text for explorations of language and its connection to social identity, linguistic authority and language-based oppression. I can't wait to use it in my courses." - Robin Queen, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor, University of Michigan, USA

"English with an Accent, a powerfully penned exposition on the relation between language, subordination and discrimination, was already insightful and thought-provoking when it first appeared in 1997. This updated and expanded second edition has made it absolutely invaluable, and I can’t wait to use it in my classes. It represents sociolinguistics at its best--theoretically informed, but decidedly applied as well, implicating race relations, immigration, social class, education, politics, immigration and more. It is impossible to read this book and not be troubled by prejudices and practices that we didn’t notice or consider problematic before." - John R. Rickford, J.E. Wallace Sterling Professor of Linguistics and the Humanities, Stanford University,USA

"The author engages her reader in a multitude of ways that preclude boredom, and even entertain those of us with a penchant for language scrutiny, psycholinguistics, or sociolinguistics... In addition to those fascinated by language, proponents of social justice will likely find Lippi-Green's book worth much more than its weight." - Elizabeth Laurence, The Midwest Book Review, June 2013
