From the Back Cover:

“No one sees and synthesizes the theoretical connections between diverse strands of sociolinguistic research better than Allan Bell.  His Guidebook to Sociolinguistics is comprehensive, up-to-date, and especially rich in fresh examples and perspectives.”
John R. Rickford, Stanford University

“The Guidebook to Sociolinguistics offers ... integrated exercises derived from Bell’s extensive research background and allows readers to experience both the operational details of primary analysis and the theoretical constructs that underlie the field of sociolinguistics. It’s the perfect introduction!”
Walt Wolfram, North Carolina State University

“Bell has provided a detailed and authoritative road map to sociolinguistics. Carefully structured, clearly written, lively and accessible throughout, the Guidebook introduces all the major traditions of sociolinguistics, pin-pointing the most important sources and perspectives, supported by a wealth of practical examples and exercises.
Nikolas Coupland, Copengahen University and University of Technology Sydney


The Guidebook to Sociolinguistics
offers students a comprehensive introduction to the main ideas and terms of sociolinguistics, along with an understanding of the aims, methods, and findings of sociolinguistic research.

The book explores the three main strands of sociolinguistics – multilingualism, ethnographic-interactional sociolinguistics, and variationist sociolinguistics – covering both macro to micro issues. It begins with multilingualism, and moves on through language choice and variation to style and identity. It also introduces readers to the methodology and skills required to produce hands-on sociolinguistic research, and leads students through the challenges involved in conducting their own research project. Alongside practical examples, a range of helpful classic and contemporary case studies and exercises are included.

Informed by the latest social and linguistic theory, and written by one of the leading figures in the field, The Guidebook to Sociolinguistics offers illuminating insights into the complex relationship between language and the social nature of human beings.

Allan Bell is Professor of Language & Communication, and Director of the Institute of Culture, Discourse & Communication at Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand. He is the Editor of the Journal of Sociolinguistics (Wiley-Blackwell), and of several books on New Zealand English and other languages.
