Since the publication of the first edition of the handbook
Sociolinguistics, the then young discipline has changed and developed
considerably. The field has left behind its status as an interdiscipline
between sociology and linguistics and is now a worldwide established field.
Sociolinguistics continues to contribute to solving practical problems in
areas such as language planning and standardization, language policy, as
well as in language didactics and speech therapy. Moreover, new topics and
areas of application have arisen from the autonomy of the discipline -
these have been systematically and extensively included in the second
edition of the handbook. The new overall concept depicts the regional and
disciplinary representativity of sociolinguistic research while offering an
encyclopedia-like useability for all its readers. This includes theoretical
depth and stringency for readers interested in theory, as well as
methodical abundance and detail for empirical researchers. The descriptions
of methods are often so informative and precise that they can be directly
used in the preparation of project planning. Similarly, the descriptions in
the practice-oriented articles are so precise that users can accurately
assess to what extent they can expect a certain sociolinguistic approach to
help solve their problems. With an extensive description as its goal, the
second edition of the handbook Sociolinguistics takes into account the
current standing of the discipline and the modified structure of the field.
