After thirty years of research since the early 1980s, the omission of historical sociolinguistics is of course regrettable. One reason for it might be that historical sociolinguistic work has been so well integrated into the mainstream approaches of sociolinguistics delineated by Bell that there is no need to discuss historical work separately.

A model of historical sociolinguistics All three areas or disciplines (in the widest possible sense) have one core that distinguishes them from each other as well as from other disciplines that are not mentioned here, like any of the natural sciences.

As Suzanne Romaine (1982: 2) put it, in order to “test the ability of sociolinguistics to deal with historical data” and “to cross-fertilize historical linguistics with sociolinguistics in order to use the past to explain the present” (ib.: X
