About this book

Introduction

This book analyses the language practices of young adults in Mongolia and Bangladesh in online and offline environments. Focusing on the diverse linguistic and cultural resources these young people draw on in their interactions, the authors draw attention to the creative and innovative nature of their transglossic practices. Situated on the Asian periphery, these young adults roam widely in their use of popular culture, media voices and linguistic resources. This innovative and topical book will appeal to students and scholars of sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, cultural studies and linguistic anthropology.

Reviews

“Dovchin, Pennycook, & Sultana have contributed to the field of sociolinguistics a novel approach to the study of language in online and offline contexts. This book should be key to any course on the sociolinguistics of the internet, computer-mediated communication, or the study of multilingualism more generally.” (Quentin Williams, Language in Society, Vol. 48 (1), February, 2019)
