Enregisterment: Linguistic form and meaning in time and spaceSprache im urbanen Raum/Language in Urban Space (2014)
This chapter provides an overview of work by Silverstein and Agha on indexical meaning and enregisterment, particularly as it has been taken up in sociolinguistics by Johnstone and others. I argue that in order to make full use of these powerful semiotic ideas, we need to think about the connections between linguistic forms and meanings from multiple perspectives.
