Dialectology
Second Edition
J. K. Chambers, University of Toronto
Peter Trudgill, University of Lausanne 

When first published in 1980, Dialectology broke new ground by giving
an integrated account of the social and regional aspects of
dialectology. In this updated edition, the authors offer new sections
on dialectometry and mapping variability, as well as updates of recent
developments.The book examines dialectology in its widest sense, as
the study of the way language, dialect and accent varies from place to
place, social group to social group and time to time. As a
comprehensive account of all aspects of dialectology this new edition
makes an ideal introduction to the subject.
