"This exquisite student's guide takes the beginner from the first steps in fieldwork and acoustics to the more advanced topics of sociophonetics.ã It is written by leading scholars known for their student-friendly stance at workshops at international conferences.ã I will be using it for years to comeã as a set text for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, and in fine-tuning my own work in this fast-growing research area." Rajend Mesthrie, University of Cape Town, South Africa.ã ã
"The book is a rich source of information on methodologies of sociophonetic analysis, with information ranging from the basics of data collection to the most advanced computational techniques. The editors have done a remarkable job of putting together a variety of papers on phonetic, acoustic, and statistical analyses and linking them effectively to social factors such as speaker, age, purpose (i.e. normal speech or formal interviews), role, and context." -- Seetha Jayaraman, Dhofar University, LINGUIST List
