Published 2006 .
Written in English.

About the Book

Socioliteracy is a habitues requiring the knowing of when and how language can be manipulated to communicate effectively in different social settings, resulting in maximizing total comprehension. This study investigates literacy practices in social settings, subscribing a social view of literacy to constantly evolving definitions. In doing so, this study examines literacy as social practices where individuals engage in discursive acts about and around social issues, while considering the influences of social codes, requiring communicators to possess an ability to understand "appropriateness" of a topic and ideal methods for topic delivery. Delving into an understanding of what degree of language comprehension speakers need in order to communicate effectively in any circumstance, it is hoped that socioliteracy can aid in developing and understanding theoretical literacy. By advancing an understanding of socioliteracy as a sociological competence, one becomes more proficient in traditional literacy, leading to language usage as a tool of influence.
