  • Examines the cognitive and cultural influences responsible for linguistic change
  • Demonstrates under what conditions dialects diverge from one another
  • Establishes an essential distinction between transmission within the community and diffusion across communities
  • Completes Labov’s seminal Principles of Linguistic Change trilogy
