The Routledge Handbook of Linguistic Ethnography provides an accessible, authoritative and comprehensive overview of this growing body of research, combining ethnographic approaches with close attention to language use. This handbook illustrates the richness and potential of linguistic ethnography to provide detailed understandings of situated patterns of language use while connecting these patterns clearly to broader social structures.
Including a general introduction to linguistic ethnography and 25 state-of-the-art chapters from expert international scholars, the handbook is divided into three sections. Chapters cover historical, empirical, methodological and theoretical contributions to the field, and new approaches and developments.
This handbook is key reading for those studying linguistic ethnography, qualitative research methods, sociolinguistics and educational linguistics within English Language, Applied Linguistics, Education and Anthropology.

"In just two decades, a unique 'intellectual commons' has been created by researchers who are committed to combining ethnographic approaches with close analysis of language practices, on and offline. This handbook documents and interrogates, in rigorous and compelling detail, the different strands of theory and method that have formed the basis of this intellectual tradition. It brings together contributions from scholars who have played a key role in the development of linguistic ethnography with fresh input from scholars who are taking the work in new directions. As well as being an immensely good read, the handbook will constitute a key resource for all of us who are concerned with building an understanding of the specific, situated ways in which language and literacy practices are bound up with the changing conditions of contemporary social life."

"This is an important text on the rich history as well as infinite applications of Linguistic Ethnography, including fresh discussions on topics such as discourse analysis, multimodalities, globalized language and situations, digital approaches, linguistic and ethnographic studies on youth language, classroom settings, faith communities and more! The collection of experts here is immense: this is simply the best collection of scholars in the field. This is a 'must-read' for all past, present and future scholars invested in the vital work of Linguistic Ethnography."
