Thisintroduction is supplemented by exercises focusing on data handling andcollection.

The Reader is divided into six sections and each section is thematicallyorganised. Each reading is accessible to beginning students ofsociolinguistics but the entire selection is assembled to also helpadvanced students focus on themes, principles and concepts that cut acrossdifferent researchers' work. Beginning and advanced students are supportedby Content Questions to assist understanding of essential features in thereadings, and Concept Questions which help advanced students makeconnections across readings, apply theory to data, and critically engagewith the readings. A companion website supports and connects the Reader andtextbook with structured exercises, links to associated websites and videoexamples, plus an online glossary.
