It shows how empirical explorations have made sociolinguistics the most stimulating field in the contemporary study of language. It discusses the linguistic variable and its significance, crucial social variables such as social stratification, sex, and age, and the cultural significance of linguistic variation. (source: Nielsen Book Data). linguistic variation (sociolinguistics proper): focuses on the linguistic variable that correlates with social differences. Unit of study is language itself. Considered a part of linguistics. Biggest proponent - Labov. ethnography of speaking: emphasis on various aspects of context that are involved in differing interpretations of language use.

This book is a concise historical survey of structural linguistics, charting its development from the s to the present day. Peter Matthews examines the beginnings of structuralism and analyzes the vital role played in it by the study of sound systems and the problems of how systems change. He discusses theories of the overall structure of a Cited by: 21 Unit 4: CNC Language and Structure. OBJECTIVE.

Etymologically the vocabulary of the English language is far from being homogeneous.

This book for the first time reconstructs in a single theoretical framework the more important approaches to linguistic variation found in areas as different as historical linguistics, dialectology, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, stylistics, contrastive linguistics, language typology, so-called evaluation grammar, and current Chomskyan generative grammar (generally with an emphasis Pages: In this way, the linguistic variable is an abstraction.

The varying forms must exist in some linguistically meaningful subsystem of the grammar. The linguistic variable must also have another important characteristic. It must co-vary, i.e. correlate, with patterns of social and/or linguistic.

Abstract: Structural Linguistics is an approach to linguistics and is a part of overall approach of structuralism. It is stressed examining language as a static system of interconnected units.

Structural Linguistics involves collecting a corpus of utterances and then attempting to File Size: KB. •Dummy Variables are a common way of solving structural breaks, as it does not involve splitting the data. •These variables consist of 1s and 0s and are often termed Zon-off variables.

•They can be used to determine the importance of policy actions on models and File Size: KB. In more specific terms, a linguistic variable is characterized by a quintuple (a", T(^), U,G,M) in which Sf is the name of the variable; T(^) is the term-set of^, that is, the collection of its linguistic values; U is a universe of discourse; G is a syntactic rule which generates the terms in T(a!')\ and M is a semantic rule which associates with each linguistic value X its meaning, M(X), where M(X) denotes a fuzzy subset Cited by: LINGUISTIC VARIABLE DEFINITION A Boolean linguistic variable is a linguistic variable whose terms, X, are Boolean expressions in variables of the form X, hX, X or hX, where h is a linguistic hedge, X is a primary term and hX is the name of a fuzzy set resulting from acting with h on by:   The Linguistic Variables Definition The linguistic variables are those where the meaning remain constant but form varies like cat & pussy have the same social meaning but different form.

So far pronunciation is concerned house [h] and with [h] has same social meaning with different pronunciation. Structural linguistics is an approach to linguistics originating from the work of Swiss linguist Ferdinand de Saussure and is part of the overall approach of structuralism.

Saussure's Course in General Linguistics, published posthumously instressed examining language as a dynamic system of interconnected units.

He is thus known as a father of modern linguistics for bringing about the shift from diachronic to synchronic analysis, although as a historical linguist.

A linguistic variable [3] is a variable whose values are linguistic terms. The concept of linguistic variable is applied in dealing with situations which are too complex or too ill-defined to be reasonably described in conventional quantitative expressions. For example, ‘height; is a linguistic variable, its values can be very high, high.

FROM LINGUISTIC VARIABLE TO VARIABLE RULE Although the inventory of structural sets used for defining the linguistic variable listed above may not be exhaustive, it is sufficient for us to observe that the operational definition of a linguistic variable in variation studies includes a fairly wide range of linguistically based units and relationships.
