Language attitudes, standardization and language change is a collection of 14 papers devoted to ­developing and elucidating ideas originally conceived by the Norwegian and Danish scholar Tore Kristiansen. It is published on the occasion of his 60th birthday. This book is more than a traditional ‘Festschrift’, however. It is a coherent collection of papers by some of the world’s leading scholars in the sociolinguistic field of language attitudes, variation and change. This is because Tore Kristiansen is an unusually coherent scholar. His research programme has been developed from first principles; it covers a well defined area of (socio)linguistics and it has now reached fruition – which this book indeed is one sign of. The papers are evidence of Tore Kristiansen’s steadily growing influence. His perspective on the subjective dimensions of language change should be taken into consideration by other researchers in the field and this book is a chance to get an idea of what they may lead to.
