This practical guide to research methods in sociolinguistics equips readers with a full range of techniques to apply in their own academic work. A team of twenty leading contributors provides detailed procedural instructions on an array of anthropological and scientific methods that cover the full spectrum of contemporary sociolinguistics, from the study of style and discourse analysis to the study of phonetics.

The second part focuses on data analysis across a number of languages, subdivided into segments on linguistic and sociocultural techniques.

Comprehensive coverage is combined with useful summaries, seasoned advice and troubleshooting tips, ideas for research projects, and a full directory of supplementary reading, for those undertaking research in this specialist field.
