The second edition of Data Collection in Sociolinguistics: Methods and Applications continues to provide up-to-date, succinct, relevant, and informative discussion about methods of data collection in sociolinguistic research. Written by a range of top sociolinguists, both veteran and emerging scholars, it covers the main areas of research design, conducting research, and sharing data findings. In addition to revisions of original material, this edition includes nine new vignettes covering such topics as collecting data from social media, conducting linguistic landscape research, forensic linguistic data collection, and working with transgender communities. A companion website,, provides enhanced pedagogical features such as discussion questions, activities, end-of-chapter exercises, and contributor videos. This volume is the one-stop, go-to guide for the numerous quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods used in sociolinguistic research; it is the ideal resource for undergraduate and graduate courses in sociolinguistic research, field methods and data collection.

"Since its first edition, Data Collection in Sociolinguistics has provided an up-to-the-minute overview of the issues facing the sociolinguistic researcher. The lineup of authors, the range of topics and contexts, and the nuanced handling of complex issues make this volume crucial for seasoned researchers as well as students just entering the field." Mary Bucholtz, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA "The last few years have seen various introductory books on sociolinguistic methodologies. This one is certainly one of the best buys on the market sophisticated, up-to-date, and innovative while at the same time authoritative and highly accessible; simply everything researchers, old and young, need to know!" Daniel Schreier, University of Zurich, Switzerland
