Abstract:

Historical sociolinguistics has now established itself as a separate
independent field of linguistic inquiry, and the impact of its theoretical and
empirical advances are reflected in a thriving body of publications of various
types. This volume adds to this flourishing array by presenting nine original
studies by highly accomplished scholars holding a prominent reputation in the
field. The overarching objective of the volume is to call attention to
contemporary trends and innovative developments in the discipline and, more
generally, to highlight current research on the relationship between
sociolinguistics and historical linguistics, social motivations of language
variation and change, and corpus-based studies. The overall interdisciplinary
nature of the contributions, the variety of languages they examine and the
range of themes they address are distinguishing features of the book, which
also make it appealing to a wider readership. The general themes covered by
the volume include how to define the historical and social dimensions in
historical sociolinguistics research, historical second-language use and
multilingualism, the role and relevance played by linguistic ideologies and
attitudes in language choices, usage, policy (standardization and
preservation), and language death. More specific topics addressed are the
linguistic strategies employed to convey and defend religious ideology or to
heighten the overall persuasiveness of the information provided. Controversial
and/or under-researched issues are tackled, such as authorship and gender in
the study of private documents, the regularization and standardization of
English orthography, and the issue of speakers’ awareness of the dissociation
between spoken and written language. In addition, several contributions are
methodologically linked by employing data from epistolary correspondence.
