Historical Sociolinguistics
Studies on Language and Society in the Past

Series Editors:
Nils Langer (University of Bristol)
Stephan ElspaƟ (Universitaet Salzburg)
Joseph Salmons (University of Wisconsin; Madison)
Wim Vandenbussche (Vrije Universiteit Brussel)

The interdisciplinary field of Historical Sociolinguistics seeks to reveal the
impact of language development on society and the role of individuals and
society in the changing forms and usage of language. This book series is aimed
at sociolinguists and social historians who are keen to publish studies on the
social history of languages, the interaction of linguistic practices and
society, and the sociological significance of linguistic variation with a
historical dimension. The purpose of the series is to provide empirically
supported studies that will challenge and advance current language
historiographies, which often continue to present the history of particular
languages as necessarily leading to the creation of a standard or prestige
variety. Of particular interest are topics such as the following: language
myths and language ideology, historical multilingualism and the formation of
nation-states, the sociolinguistics of minority and regional languages, the
rise of urban vernaculars, immigrants and their languages, the role of
prescriptive grammarians, and the social history of pidgins and creoles.

Book proposals from historians and linguists working on any language in any
period are welcome, in particular those that include a comparative dimension
as well as those with a strong empirical foundation. The preferred language of
publication is English.

All publications will be peer reviewed; the four series editors and
twenty-five members of the advisory board are all members of the Historical
Sociolinguistics Network (HiSoN) <http://www.hison.ac.uk>.
