Abstract and Keywords

To use language is to engage in a social process. As a result, the social psychological antecedents and consequences of language use are extensive. Yet social psychologists have tended to ignore language, just as cognitive psychologists have tended to ignore the social dimensions of language use. The Oxford Handbook of Language and Social Psychology is an interdisciplinary volume that focuses specifically on the interface of language and social psychology. The chapter authors, all well-known researchers in the language and social psychology domain, address the social underpinnings of language and language use, the creation of meaning, the linguistic underpinnings of social psychological processes, and the role of language and social psychology in a variety of applied topics.

Keywords: Social psychology, language use, meaning, coordination, social cognition, culture, pragmatics, attitudes
