The Handbook presents views of linguistic variation in the diverse contexts that give it meaning and significance, across generations, social strata, and domains of interaction. It includes an extensive examination of the methodologies emploed by linguists working in linguistic variation and change, addressing the levels of linguistic structure thet have been the main foci of work in the field.
