Cyhoeddwyd gyntaf yng Ngorffennaf 2003.

A comprehensive analysis of attitudes to language, in particular to the English language in Wales, of the relationship between social change and attitudes, the social meanings of dialect, ethnicity and performance, based on extensive research and data collection in secondary schools across Wales. 8 diagrams and 6 maps. First published in July 2003.
The book begins with a detailed review of the different methods used in researching language attitudes, exploring their strengths and weaknesses, with particular reference to studies of the English language in Wales. The authors then describe and discuss two sets of studies to investigate language attitudes of teachers and young adolescents in Wales. The first study was based on questionnaires completed by teachers at thirty-two schools all over Wales, while the second study used fourteen audio-recordings of narratives told by fourteen-year olds from different regions to evaluate the sociolinguistic attitudes of year-ten students and teachers, again from the different Welsh regions.

Chapters seven, eight and nine, which focus on the data from the narratives study, raise such issues as the perceived social attractiveness, prestige and the degree of Welshness of the different varieties of Welsh English. It is these chapters that are perhaps most accessible to the general reader, as they deal with the findings of the investigative studies. The conclusions drawn about different levels and kinds of Welshness are complex but clearly rooted in the real-life experiences of the respondents in the studies.

Investigating Language Attitudes is a systematic and critical appraisal of the variety of ways in which people’s attitudes to language have been researched internationally over recent decades. The authors explain this complex field through clear reviews and commentary on previous work, while also offering a demonstration of language attitude research in one specific and important context, the English language in Wales. In addition to discussing different ways of expressing attitudes, from teenagers’ and teachers’ attitudes to regional and subcultural variation in attitudes, the book also considers issues such as degrees of authentic Welshness, the impact of rapid social change in Wales.
The methodological and empirical issues considered in Investigating Language Attitudes will be of particular interest to all lecturers, researchers, and students in the fields of sociolinguistics, the social psychology of language, the sociology of language, and education. For those with a particular interest in Wales, the findings from the series of empirical studies present a barometer of life opportunities, social inequalities, and national coherence in a changing contemporary environment.
