(p. ix) Acknowledgments

The editors gratefully acknowledge the usual assistance of their institutions in providing appropriate homes for academic activity, even the editing of others’ work. We especially thank Brian Hurley of Oxford University Press, who approached us with the idea for this book. We also thank Molly Morrison of Newgen North America for managing the production of this volume, Ginny Faber for copyediting, Janet Mazefsky for producing the extensive index, and University of California, Davis, linguistics students Matt Balvin, Daniel Villarreal, and Kristin Ware, who read drafts of many of the chapters and contributed in a variety of ways to the progress of this volume.

The contributors to this volume constitute a distinguished group of 50 scholars who represent several generations and reside in 10 different countries. We thank them for their timely contributions and their willingness to respond to requests. We also owe a debt of gratitude to our sociolinguistic mentors at Stanford, Penn, and Georgetown: Gregory Guy, John Rickford, William Labov, and Roger Shuy. Finally, we are grateful to our families and significant others for their continued and unwavering support of all our endeavors: Ann Robinson, Beth Andress, Russell Bayley, Stephen Brown, and Diana González-Cameron.
