Description:

“The Handbook of Hispanic Sociolinguistics” is a comprehensive, state-of-the-
art overview of theoretical and applied research in this emerging field. Each of
its sections brings together the latest perspectives by internationally renowned
sociolinguists on key research strands, including phonological and morpho-
syntactic variation; language, age, and gender; language contact; Spanish in the
United States of America; and language policy and planning.

Featuring newly-commissioned material, the Handbook is an authoritative
response to the need for a dedicated resource on sociolinguistic research in
Spanish, and will help shape the ongoing discussions in this field for years to
come.
