Rezensionen
"A major strength of this book is indeed the focus on research. Bell not only provides different types of data from the field, but also detailed explanations on how data has been collected and interpreted. . . a fine candidate for an undergraduate sociolinguistics course. It introduces the key topics, provides lots of excellent and modern examples and is written in an accessible style suitable for introducing material to students not yet familiar with linguistic theory or social science research methodology." (Linguistlist, 14 July 2014)

"In seeking answers to these and myriad other questions through reading and engaging with Bell's book, students and researchers alike will find substantive knowledge, lofty wisdom, and inspiration to carry forward the tradition of study of the world's rich social and linguistic diversity in which Bell has long played a key part." (Journal of Sociolinguistics, 3 June 2014)
