Hi, I have a very important exam from Sociolinguistics and I need help with answering one question. The quetion is - What are the principles of sociolinguistic behaviour of native speakers of English? Can anyone help me, thank you :).
That is an abysmally awful question! I'd probably answer as if it meant: What are some sociolinguistic principles that apply to English-speakers. I can't think of many that don't also apply to other languages though.

I agree with Raymott about the quality of the question and would take the same approach to answering it.
