Title: Variation in Linguistic Systems
Written By: James A. Walker
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415990677/
Description:

Tying together work on a number of languages and linguistic varieties in
different locales, this book provides students and researchers with a
convenient, unified overview of variationist analysis in linguistics.
Variation in Linguistic Systems takes a theoretical and quantitative
approach to the study of variation in language, focusing on the role of
language-internal constraints on variation and the relation of linguistic
variation to linguistic theory. It introduces the basic concepts of
variationist linguistics and includes key discussions on language change,
language contact, the different types of variation, multivariate analysis
with GoldVarb, and variation in sound and grammatical systems.

Here is an ideal textbook for an introductory course on variation, as well
as a useful resource for scholars with some background in linguistics who
are interested in the study of language variation and its relation to the
wider field of linguistics.
