              BIRDING BY EAR uses an educational and entertaining method for learning bird songs. Instead of merely providing a catalog of bird song samples, BIRDING BY EAR actually teaches. This proven method has greatly enhanced the field experience for birders across North America. The auth...ors have created learning groups of similar vocalizations and clearly point out distinguishing characteristics. Using techniques such as phonetics, mnemonics, and descriptive words, Walton and Lawson provide a context for learning the songs and calls of eighty-five species of birds found east of the Rockies. Combine the auditory instruction here with the visual features of the Peterson Identification System. Page numbers in BIRDING BY EAR's booklet refer to species descriptions in the PETERSON FIELD GUIDE TO BIRDS OF EASTERN AND CENTRAL NORTH AMERICA, fifth edition.

              Sociolinguistic Research: Application and Impact provides a dynamic and unique overview for researchers and advanced students undertaking research projects within the area of sociolinguistics and shows how this research can have practical applications beyond an academic audience,... and have a clear impact upon professional practice and people's lives. There is an increasing push within academia that research at all levels have a practical application and real-world impact and it is now a significant criterion for most funding bodies. Anyone undertaking research in sociolinguistics must address such questions as: How can sociolinguistics adapt to this? What steps could be taken to make the discipline more relevant outside academia? How can public engagement with sociolinguistic research be facilitated? This book will answer these questions and shows researchers how their own research can become more outward facing. Featuring chapters from established and emerging scholars such as Mary Bucholtz, John R. Rickford, and Walt Wolfram and including sociolinguistic research from Europe, Asia, and North America, this book includes: * chapters that showcase contemporary and cutting edge sociolinguistic research which have had practical and real world applications * case studies from a range of professional fields including criminal justice, education, language policy-making, workplace communication, asylum seeker assessment, and migrant integration * the various methods of gaining user and public involvement, from running community workshops for migrant groups, organising stalls at county fairs, facilitating school student participation in education projects, and ensuring influence in professional practice Sociolinguistics Research: Application and Impact is essential reading for sociolinguistic researchers and students embarking on research in this area.
