Sociolinguistics Archive was developed at The Department of Language and Linguistic Science at the University of York. It is intended as a forum for work in sociolinguistics, language variation and change and linguistic anthropology. It is modeled on online archives in other subdisciplines including lingbuzz, Semantics Archive and Rutgers Optimality Archive.
Copyright of work posted on Sociolinguistics Archive is retained by the author. It is the responsibility of users uploading papers to ensure that doing so does not infringe on any copyrights.
Sociolinguistics Archive is monitored. Grossly inappropriate material will be removed.
The preferred format for archived material is .pdf, though any format is acceptable. Word documents are especially susceptible to viruses and worms. We do not scan files for viruses, so users wishing to download Word files should be cautious in this regard.
We are grateful to Kriss Fearon, Fergus McGlynn and Jonathan Wheeler of the Computing Service at the University of York and also to Michal Starke and Chris Barker for support and/or guidance in setting up this archive. Sociolinguistics Archive was created by Tom Denham and Bill Haddican. For comments or questions please contact Bill Haddican at wh506 AT york DOT ac DOT uk.
