An extract from The Cambridge Dictionary of Sociology which outlines the work of Basil Bernstein. Bernstein was responsible for drawing attention to the correlation between class difference and the capacity of people to draw upon ‘restricted’ or ‘extended’ linguistic codes. His research provided a basis for examining sociologically the function of schooling.
