Abstract:

Sociophonetics is one of the sub-branches of the discipline that hasattracted a great deal of attention over the last decade. Recent advancesin speech science and their technological simulations allow increasinglysophisticated studies of the progress of language contact and change. Thesestudies, particularly those at the level of pronunciation, show thatlanguage variety is robust and socially embedded in interesting ways.Instrumental studies of language variety contact and change have focused onthe role of social categories and attitudes in variety perception as wellas production. Some of the studies presented in this volume look at thespecific role of social factors in the formation, progress, and deterrenceof intralingual contact and change; while others look at the ways in whichsocial identities and beliefs influence a listener's ability to identifyand comprehend varieties. These studies use detailed acoustic analyses ofproduction speech data and of responses to samples of data based on suchanalyses. Although the book assumes some knowledge of basic acoustics andvariationist studies, the general introduction plus chapter and sectionintroductions provide a review of practices in the field, including thoseof collection, analysis, and interpretation.
