Amazon.com: 5.0 out of 5 stars 1 review
5.0 out of 5 stars The Handbook of Sociolinguistics, ed. Florian Coulmas, a classic 7 Feb. 2013
By Denise Daoust - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This review is a little hard for me to do, since I wrote a chapter in this book.

Florian Coulmas is a passionate researcher and a perfectionist. He wanted this book to be THE reference in all domains of sociolinguistics. As he told me, he chose the best scholars in their field of knowledge.
He was supervising my work, nearly everyday : encouraging me, pointing out the parts of my text which I should improve. He made me work very hard. He surely did the same thing for every scholar who wrote a chapter.

He wanted this book to be used as a reference book. Which it is.

Nearly all the reviews I've read for this book are positive. Of course, some are more critical. But what scholarly book can be perfect?

I have bought the paperback edition on Amazon as a gift to a younger teacher in my hometown, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

She loved it and is using it even though other books or papers have been written on most of the themes in Coulmas book. Of course, life goes on and new ideas develop. But basics remain basics.

I, myself, have never met Professor Florian Coulmas. And I always will be thankful for having asked me to write a chapter in this book.
A classic!
