This unit is concerned with the study of language and language learning from diverse sociolinguistic perspectives. It provides both historical and contemporary perspectives on the development of social understandings of language relating to power, diversity, and various societal/global ideologies. Language and language learning are studied as dynamic social processes, and the role of individuals in these social processes is also considered. The nature of 'community' is examined from sociological perspectives, and the relations between language, learning, and community are explored.
