During the past three decades, with sociolinguistics emerging as a
major field of linguistic research, historical sociolinguistics has
been established as an important subfield of historical linguistics.

The papers in the present volume - most of which were first presented
at the Twelfth International Tromso Symposium on Language: Historical
Sociolinguistics, held at the University of Tromso on June 9--11, 1994
- contribute to a much needed theoretical discussion of this subfield
as well as bringing together a considerable body of empirical data
pertaining to the description and analysis of historical
sociolinguistic conditions.
