Why does human language vary from one person, or one group, to another? In
what ways does it vary? How do linguists go about studying variation in,
say, the sound system or the sentence structure of a particular language?
Why is the study of language variation important outside the academic
world, in say education, the law, employment or housing? This book provides
an overview of these questions, bringing together a team of experts to
survey key areas within the study of language variation and language
change. Covering both the range of methods used to research variation in
language, and the applications of such research to a variety of social
contexts, it is essential reading for advanced students and researchers in
sociolinguistics, communication, linguistic anthropology and applied
