The aim of the first chapter is to give an overview of sociolinguistics in Wales and introduce the research which appears in the volume. First, we consider the current linguistic situation in Wales and summarise the history of contact between Welsh and English. Second, we present a review of previous sociolinguistic research in Wales. Third, the chapters in the volume are discussed and, to close, we highlight directions for future research.
