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.
