Linguistic LingField(s):   Sociolinguistics

Summary:   A summary listing of introductory works on sociolinguistics -- written
in languages other than English -- is now available at:

The books fall into two dichotomies: translations, and texts original
to the language, on one hand; and on the other, they are either general
surveys, or language-/region-specific treatments.
I would be happy to receive additions to this list, and -- more
importantly -- brief evaluations of their usefulness, esp. by someone
who has used any of them to teach. References to book reviews in
English linguistics journals would also be welcome.

Thanks to all the correspondents who suggested or commented on titles:
