Title: Dialectology
Written By: J. K. Chambers
Peter Trudgill
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521596467
Series Title: Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics
Description:

When first published in 1980, Dialectology broke new ground by giving an
integrated account of the social and regional aspects of dialectology. In
this updated edition, the authors offer new sections on dialectometry and
mapping variability, as well as updates of recent developments.The book
examines dialectology in its widest sense, as the study of the way
language, dialect and accent varies from place to place, social group to
social group and time to time. As a comprehensive account of all aspects of
dialectology this new edition makes an ideal introduction to the subject.
