Sociophonetics - the interface of sociolinguistics and phonetics - is a field that has expanded rapidly in recent years. A subject that requires both methodological and theoretical assessment for study, sociophonetics has never before been presented in a way that ties these fundamental strands together so successfully.

In a methodical and structured approach, Sociophonetics: An Introduction: iC Provides detailed analysis of phonetic variables, discussing consonants, vowels, prosody and voice quality iC Includes clear and thorough explanations of how to measure linguistic phenomena and conduct acoustic analyses and perception experiments iC Contains almost 200 illustrations of phonetic processes and 'field marks' for the examination of sociolinguistic variables iC Covers a variety of theoretical approaches, including exemplar theory and cognitive sociolinguistics iC Examines, through theoretical issues, how sociolinguistics, phonetics and cognitive linguistics are linked Thomas' innovative and friendly introduction to sociophonetics presents both a guide for advanced beginners as well as a basis for further development of professional research.
