Data Collection in Sociolinguistics: Methods and Applications, ed. by Christine Mallinson, Becky Childs and Gerard Van Herk (Routledge, 2013).
(image) The text has been designed to be as instructor- and student-friendly as possible: It is a compact and relatively low cost volume ($49.95) that is still comprehensive, at over 300 pages and with contributions from over 50 sociolinguists. The website contains more information about the volume, a table of contents, and multimedia teaching tools, including videos made by contributors, as well as several free downloadable chapters.
The volume is now available on Amazon. Complimentary exam copies are available from Routledge, for instructors interested in adopting the book.
