doi  abstract   bibtex   
This paper surveys and illustrates ten years of research done on sociophonological\textbackslashnvariation in Viennese German from a methodological point of view.\textbackslashnIt shows how variants of the same word form are collected and analyzed\textbackslashnand how two types of rules are differentiated: (1) phonostylistic\textbackslashn(optional) phonological rules of the fast/casual and formal hyperarticulate\textbackslashnspeech, both of Standard Austrian German and Viennese German Dialect;\textbackslashnand (2) bidirectional input switch rules between these two strata.\textbackslashnPsycholinguistic lab experiments are summarized, which vouch for\textbackslashnthe psychological reality of sociolinguistic concepts used. A theory\textbackslashnof sociopsychological speech situations is described as well as the\textbackslashnapplication of quantitative and qualitative sociolinguistic methods\textbackslashnused. A major illustration of our approach is taken from the sociolinguistic\textbackslashnstudy of defendants at court. The conclusion summarizes major claims.
