Salience in Sociolinguistics

A Quantitative Approach

Series:Topics in English Linguistics [TiEL] 84

DE GRUYTER MOUTON

    Aims and Scope

    This work proposes a definition of the notion of salience in sociolinguistics. Salient linguistic variants are those that are easily picked up by the listeners, and these stand in opposition to `invisible' variants, which are, even if they also show complex social stratification, completely ignored. Taking a quantitative angle, this work sees salience as a function of relative frequency differences, giving it an empirically testable operationalisation.
