ILLUMINATING INNOVATIVE AND PROMISING PATHS FOR HISTORICAL SOCIOLINGUISTICS Prikaz knjige EXPLORING FUTURE PATHS FOR HISTORICAL SOCIOLINGUISTICS Tanja Säily, Arja Nurmi, Minna Palander-Collin and Anita Auer (eds.) Amsterdam / Philadelphia: John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2017.
The book Exploring Future Paths for Historical Sociolinguistics is one of the recently published volumes in the John Benjamins Publishing Company’s book series Advances in Historical Sociolinguistics. As we learn from the editors Tanja Säily, Arja Nurmi, Minna Palander-Collin and Anita Auer in the introductory chapter The future of historical sociolinguistics?, the main inspiration for this volume was the pioneering work of the Finnish linguist Terttu Nevalainen in the field of historical sociolinguistics, and this inspiration is shared not only by the editors, but also by the other authors in this book.
