Abstract:

>From its beginnings in the 1960s, sociolinguistics developed several different
subfields with distinct methods and interests: the variationist tradition
established by Labov, the anthropological tradition of Hymes, interactional
sociolinguistics as developed by Gumperz, and the sociology of language
represented by the work of Fishman. All of these areas have seen a great deal
of growth in recent decades, and recent studies have led to a more broadly
inclusive view of sociolinguistics. Hence there is a need for a handbook that
will survey the main areas of the field, point out the lacunae in our existing
knowledge base, and provide directions for future research.

The Oxford Handbook of Sociolinguistics will differ from existing work in four
major respects. First, it will emphasize new methodological developments,
particularly the convergence of linguistic anthropology and variationist
sociolinguistics. Second, it will include chapters on sociolinguistic
developments in areas of the world that have been relatively neglected in the
major journals. Third, its chapters are written by contributors who have
worked in a range of languages and whose work addresses sociolinguistic issues
in bi- and multilingual contexts, i.e. the contexts in which a majority of the
world's population lives. Finally, it will include substantial material on the
rapidly growing study of sign language sociolinguistics.
