This book provides a clear and comprehensive overview of sociolinguistics and the pragmatics of oral communication in Spanish. Drawing on the research of foremost scholars in the field, Carmen Silva-Corvalán covers central concerns of variational sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, language change, and language contact, with special reference to Spanish in the United States.
A thoroughly revised and expanded version of Silva-Corvalán's 1989 study, Sociolingüística: teoría y análisis, the book includes rigorous quantitative and qualitative analyses, and it documents such ongoing issues as language change in monolingual and bilingual communities, the nature of phonetic and syntactic variation, and modes of data collection and analysis. New topics include pragmatics and discourse analysis, discourse markers, and sociolinguistics and education.
Written in Spanish, Sociolingüística y pragmática del español will be welcomed by students and sociolinguistic researchers, who will find in it the ideal overview of the social aspects of language as well as a wealth of empirical data on Spanish linguistics. Complete with exercises at the end of each chapter and a convenient subject index, the book is appropriate for advanced undergraduates and graduate students of Spanish throughout the world.

"A major contribution to the field of Spanish sociolinguistics and pragmatics. It will be of use to specialists, language professionals, and students of Spanish linguistics for many years to come."―Modern Language Journal
"Most readable perhaps not only because of the clear writing style but equally due to the well-planned, succinct sections that compose the chapters. It is so well referenced that the reader can easily build a good overall picture of the fields, sub-fields, and specialties, etc., and their evolution within the discipline . . . a book of immense value to people from a wide range of linguistic backgrounds."―Bulletin of Spanish Studies
"Thorough, comprehensive, and up to date . . . excellent volume, which will be useful in advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on Hispanic sociolinguistics taught in the target language."―Language Problems and Language Planning
"A readable and concise introduction to the methods, findings, and implications of contemporary sociolinguistics. . . . Silva-Corvalán offers a clear presentation of the sociological and anthropological approaches to language in society. . . . Silva-Corvalán's work has long been a veritable model in Spanish sociolinguistics and this latest book by no means dimishes that position. Aside from being a clear and readable introduction written in Spanish, it is also a useful classroom workbook."―Journal of Sociolinguistics
