This handbook aims at a state-of-the-art overview of both earlier and recent research on older, newer and emerging non-standard varieties (dialects, regiolects, sociolects, substandard varieties) of German. The discussion concerns the theoretical embedding, potential interdisciplinary connections and the methodology of the studies at issue. It presents general concepts and approaches in the broad domain of German variation linguistics.
