Abstract:

Sociolinguistics: Method and Interpretation presents a thorough and
practical description of current sociolinguistic methodology while
recognizing that methodological decisions can never be separated from
questions of theory.

- Presents a thorough and practical description of current
sociolinguistic methodology.
- Considers a range of issues including speaker selection, data
collection, social considerations, phonological and syntactical
variation, style-shifting and code-switching.
- Recognizes that methodological decisions can never be separated from
questions of theory.
- Stresses the need for the entire research process from the initial
design of the project to the interpretation of results to be grounded
in theoretically defensible positions.
- Shows how the research paradigm established by a few influential
pioneers has been fruitfully expanded by exciting new trends.

Lingfield(s): Sociolinguistics
