'Investigations in Sociohistorical Linguistics creates a brilliant new paradigm for research in linguistics. Just as the name suggests, the book bridges the heretofore vast divide between sociolinguistic and historical linguistic approaches to language and language change, encapsulating the difference between 'macro-diachronic linguistics' and 'micro-diachronic linguistics'. [Trudgill] skilfully navigates the formal and the informal, incorporating aspects of popular history with detailed insights on all levels of linguistic structure, making this a delightful read.'
