Advances in Cognitive Sociolinguistics brings together ten studies into the social and conceptual aspects of language-internal variation. The volume covers three main areas where Cognitive Linguistics and sociolinguistics meet: lexical and lexical-semantic variation, constructional variation, and research on lectal attitudes and acquisition. All ten contributions rely on a firm empirical basis in the form of advanced corpus-based techniques and/or experimental methods and survey-based research. They illustrate how Cognitive Sociolinguistics studies both the variation of meaning, and the meaning of variation.
