This chapter provides an overview of research questions and methods found in sociophonetic work. We begin by providing a historical overview of the field, and then describe commonly used methods alongside the research questions they are used to explore. For those interested in teaching a course on sociophonetics, we describe how we approach teaching the course. Finally, we identify which underused methods we anticipate seeing used more widely in the coming years.
