I wasn’t quite sure to which forum this question belonged, but as I expect the answers to take the form of opinions, I decided on Great Debates. Mods, I know this topic is less than cosmic, so feel free to move this thread if you deem it necessary.
Basically, I’m in the process of researching and writing a paper on a chosen sociolinguistic topic. Thus far, my school library has not proven to be conducive to the few general topics that I have pondered examining. Disappointed, sleep-deprived, and overworked for many weeks past, I am exhausted of all profundity - but I’m sure that the Teeming Millions can offer lots of interesting suggestions!
So, Dopers, suggest away. I need as many potential specific sociolinguistic research topics as I can get my hands on in the next few days. Give me anything you can think of! Something has to work… And I will be forever indebted to he who offers the most feasible solution. Yes, you can have my soul, and do with it what you will.
