Product description


The author′s aims of introducing the field of LVC to learners, discussing its principle goals and achievements, and opening up discussion for advances in the field have been successfully achieved in this volume.   (LINGUIST, 16 May 2012)

Featured on CBC Radio One′s Ontario Today (17th October),–northern–and–southern–expressions/#socialcomments


"This book is a landmark in the study of language variation, with coverage that ranges from the practical details of gathering and processing data to the use of data in descriptive and theoretical argumentation. Best of all, it is embedded in the incredibly rich array of firsthand studies conducted by Tagliamonte and her colleagues; her research engagement and enthusiasm are truly inspiring." Walt Wolfram, North Carolina State University

"Readers of this authoritative, up to date survey from an experienced and influential researcher are sure to catch the excitement that comes from finding out how and why language varies. Jenny Cheshire, Queen Mary, University of London

"This is more than an introduction: it provides a thorough training in the analysis of linguistic change and variation by a master of the trade.  Tagliamonte′s book will launch students into the field ready to do important work." William Labov, University of Pennsylvania
