Data Collection in Sociolinguistics: Methods and Applications, ed. by Christine Mallinson, Becky Childs and Gerard Van Herk (Routledge, 2013).
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.
