Rethinking Cultural Embeddedness: A Theoretical Framework on Sociolinguistic Relativity (Published)

Do human beings exhibit the same attributes with no slight difference? Is this really the case when it comes to human nature, shared culture, norms, and values? When we say “same”, it is about the way we communicate, our etiquette, our lifestyle, and our emotions as well. From different sociological, anthropological, cultural, and therefore linguistic perspectives, we are the opposite of the same! For this purpose, it becomes a major essentiality to inspect or investigate the theoretical anatomy of Sociolinguistics. This paper offers to throw light on the basic theoretical framework on sociolinguistic relativity, mainly focusing on Language Socialization to rethink cultural embeddedness through language within the humanities.
