Definition of sociolect in English:
The dialect of a particular social class.
- A basic premise is that inequalities in society will be reflected in the distribution of social dialects (also called sociolects).
- Ideology is firmly embedded in political manifestos, in genderlects, in sociolects with nothing put across as transparently as it seems.
- That is, the poem's significance depends on the reader bringing to the text knowledge of the sociolect and of literary traditions that will uncover its initially hidden meanings.
