But it’s a palpable fact that we don’t all speak the same way, even when we happen to share what we regard as the same language. The variation in and between languages has profound but often hidden consequences for the whole spectrum of enterprises we call applied linguistics, only some of which have begun to be understood and revealed. In this chapter we look more closely at the notion of language variation and varieties, asking how some of them come to be regarded as ‘standard’ while others are viewed as ‘non-standard’ or even ‘incorrect’.

Hence we propose that our common enterprise will benefit from full and open recognition of the dual social and cognitive realities of language, full engagement with colleagues in sister areas of applied linguistics and in other disciplines, and thorough exposition and exploration of all our ideological and epistemological commitments and positions. 1 We’ve argued that the dead ends described in this chapter are widespread and persistent. But don’t take our word for it. To discover whether these folk understandings of language are operating in the minds of people in your context, conduct an informal survey by converting the dead ends into ten statements and asking people you interact with to register their agreement or disagreement with each.
