Crowd-sourcing a title

For the past six months or so, I’ve been working on an edited volume with Dave Sayers, a sociolinguist at Swansea University, on sociolinguistics beyond academia. We’ve got all our contributors lined up, the proposal is more or less finished, and we’re ready to send it to the publishers. But we’re stuck on one slight issue, and that’s where you come in.

We have two very similar titles, but we’re not sure which one is better. This is your chance to help shape the title that we’ll (probably!) end up using (usual disclaimers apply!). Granted, the difference between the two is minimal, but we’re interested in seeing which one ‘flows’ better.

Alternatively, if you have another suggestion, add it to the comments!
