The end result is a high degree of uniformity in both the categorical and variable aspects of language production, where individual variation is reduced below the level of linguistic significance. 1. e. LAUD Symposium 2010) bears the title of Cognitive Sociolinguistics, I would like to address the role of cognition in the sociolinguistic enterprise. The third volume of Principles of Linguistic Change (Labov, 2010), carries the subtitle: Cognitive and Cultural factors. To begin with, the most general sense of cognition denotes any form of knowing as distinguished from feeling and volition.

Acquisition of what is new The uniformity of the speech community makes it all the more difficult to understand how change in the community pattern comes about. The study of change in progress shows children learning to talk from their parents, then learning to talk differently from their parents, and then even more mysteriously, continuing such differences in the same direction over many generations. To understand change, we have to understand how children identify the newer pattern in the community system that they are learning, adopt that pattern, and then move further in that direction.

The Sui case makes explicit the mechanisms that lead to uniform behavior and suggest that the selection of the target group may be defined by social processes in New York City and Philadelphia as well. 3. Acquisition of variable patterns The study of linguistic variation is often reported as a way of showing what differences exist in the population.
