"Sociolinguistic Variation" brings together a group of leading
scholars in the field of language variation and change to address the
directions that sociolinguistic research is taking in the new
millennium. Among the main themes of the volume are the construction
of identity, the nature of "place" as distinct from "community", and
the role of attitudes in language variation. These themes are explored
through a variety of types of data, from traditional sources such as
narratives, to relatively new sources, such as postings on the
Internet or television documentaries.

Combining the voices of established scholars in the field with the
perspectives of promising younger scholars this volume provides
crucial guidance for anyone interested in doing research on
sociolinguistic variation. Contributors include Guy Bailey, Penelope
Eckert, Barbara Johnstone, William Labov, Ronald Macaulay, Lesley
Milroy, Dennis Preston, John Rickford, Gillian Sankoff, Natalie
Schilling-Estes, Jan Tillery, and Walt Wolfram.
