Abstract

This study analysis how a person's socioeconomic standing affects language uses, interpretation, and communication patterns, delving into the complex relationship between social class and individual responses to linguistic processes. The study takes a multifaceted approach, integrating sociolinguistics, psychology, and sociology to clarify the complex relationship between linguistic behaviors and social class. The study starts with a look at language as a social construct, recognizing that language both shapes and is a reflection of social institutions. Based on well-established theories of language and social class, the research looks at how language choices can be markers of social identity and play a role in maintaining or upending class-based inequalities. Additionally, the study looks into the psychological components of language processing, examining the ways in which people from various socioeconomic backgrounds could react differently to language inputs in their cognitive processes. In order to have a thorough grasp of the various ways that social class might influence linguistic cognition, the research combines qualitative and quantitative approaches, such as participant interviews, cognitive experiments, and linguistic analysis.
