    I assume that by 'PG' you mean some form of post graduate course. One part of (post-) graduate work is researching - and that involves more than just asking us to do it for you. If you have specific language problems, we'll be happy to try to help, but we are not in the business of providing free materials for theses.

    What's your question?
    If you want to know where to find this material, you could start with the references in your texbooks (this might require a trip to the library); then use good internet sources.
    If you have any specific questions, perhaps someone here might be able to help.

    PS: It would be better to post follow-up questions to the Linguistics sub-forum.

    thank you for replying. I mean that I will pass an exam about language contact and sociolinguistic variation. I have no idea about this topic, for example what does language contact mean? what does sociolinguistic variation mean? I have been searching in google but need a simple and comprehensive definitions.

    Sorry rasha, but if you opted for this course, it might have occurred to find out what it was about.

    Start here: Language contact - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Sociolinguistic variation | LLAS Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies
    and come back with specific questions, preferably in the Linguistics sub-forum.
