From the Back Cover:

A thoroughly revised and updated edition of the classic text, American English: Dialects and Variation 3e chronicles the ongoing story of language variation in American English. For the first time, this textbook is accompanied by a companion website hosting a  wealth of audio and video clips that enhance the themes and discussions of the text. The authors explore contexts   ranging from historically isolated, rural dialects to developing, urban ethnic varieties, and include new discussions on Jewish English and Asian-American English to complement coverage on African-American, Latino, Cajun, and Native American English,  as they guide the reader through the evolving theoretical framework of variationist sociolinguistics and its recent breakthroughs.

The engaging and accessible style of this book has long made it a favorite of students and professors alike; with its new features, including a glossary and extensive appendix of pronunciation and lexical features of American Englishes, it is sure to be a mainstay of sociolinguistics classes for years to come.
