    Style-shifting is a manifestation of intraspeaker (within-speaker) variation, in contrast with interspeaker (between-speakers) variation. It is a voluntary act which an individual effects in order to respond to or initiate changes in sociolinguistic situation (e.g., interlocutor-related, setting-related, topic-related). Dialectology without sociolinguistics at its core is a relic. No serious perspective on dialectology can grant urban research and variation theory less than a central role’ (Chambers and Trudgill , p. ). One of the historical consequences of dialectology becoming sociolinguistic is that it has become an integral branch of linguistics.

      From its beginnings in the s, sociolinguistics developed several different subfields with distinct methods and interests: the variationist tradition established by Labov, the anthropological tradition of Hymes, interactional sociolinguistics as developed by Gumperz, and the sociology of language represented by the work of Fishman. All of these areas have seen a great deal of growth in.   Style refers to ways of speaking - how speakers use the resource of language variation to make meaning in social encounters.

This chapter explores the relationship between stance and sociolinguistic style. It argues that stance is the basis of style in sociolinguistic variation: sociolinguistic variants are initially associated with interactional stances, and these stances become reified in a speech community over time and repeated use.

The chapter thus evaluates the possibility that stance is the main explanation. Style is a pivotal construct in the study of sociolinguistic variation.
