The SAGE Handbook of Sociolinguistics

sage handbookEditors: Barbara Johnstone, Paul E Kerswill, Ruth Wodak

This Handbook answers a long-standing need for an up-to-date, comprehensive, international, in-depth critical survey of the history, trajectory, data, results and key figures involved in sociolinguistics. The Handbook consists of six inter-linked sections: The History of Sociolinguistics; Sociolinguistics and Social Theory; Language, Variation and Change; Interaction; Multilingualism and Contact; Applications. It is all here, from the foundational contributions to the field to the impact of new media, new technologies of communication, globalisation, trans-border fluidities and agendas of research. It provides a basis for reckoning its origins and pathways of development as well as an authoritative account of the central debates and research issues of today.
