This chapter examines the role of linguistic penalties in the selection process. Earlier research on discrimination in employment and the sociolinguistic studies of the job interview are reviewed. This chapter then outlines the methodological approach from linguistic ethnography that is used in this book and which takes sociolinguistic analysis beyond the four walls of the interview room.
