Abstract:

The study of how language varies in social context, and how it can be
analyzed and accounted for, are the key goals of sociolinguistics. Until
now, however, the actual tools and methods have been largely passed on
through 'word of mouth', rather than being formally documented. This is the
first comprehensive 'how to' guide to the formal analysis of
sociolinguistic variation. It shows step-by-step how the analysis is
carried out, leading the reader through every stage of a research project
from start to finish.

Topics covered include fieldwork, data organization and management,
analysis and interpretation, presenting research results, and writing up a
paper. Practical and informal, the book contains all the information
needed to conduct a fully-fledged sociolinguistic investigation, and
includes exercises, checklists, references and insider tips. It is set to
become an essential resource for students, researchers and fieldworkers
embarking on research projects in sociolinguistics.
