"The revised edition of the Sociolinguistics/Soziolinguistik handbook is as comprehensive, practical, and user-friendly as its editors attest. Several aspects enhance the accessibility of the handbook, such the brief outlines that begin each article, the cross-referencing of articles, and the cumulative index. [...] the second edition of the handbook stands as an exemplary reference tool which researchers and students alike can turn for concise, yet thorough, current information on nearly any topic of sociolinguistics."Christine Mallinson in: Language in Society, 2008 "[...]every university library should have this important resource available in book or in electronic form."Katharina Barbe in: Linguist List 19.1356Vom Verlag:
In the course of the last 15 years, sociolinguistics (or the sociology of language) has established itself as a academic subject in many countries. The discipline promises to be of benefit in solving practical problems in such areas as language planning and standardization, language policy, and language teaching and therapy. Both research projects and publications and university teaching programmes in sociolinguistics now span such a wide field that it is hardly possible even for the experts to review the whole scope of the subject. A number of specialist periodicals and introductions and surveys of the subject do exist, but to date there has been no comprehensive and internationally representative account of the subject. It is the intention of the handbook to provide this account.
