Abstract. As modern research shows, sociophonetics is a multi-factor research area and its integrating methodological basis enables this section of linguistics to aspire to the role of one of the basic phonetic sciences. This article is devoted to a brief overview of the formation and evolution of the socio-phonetic direction in foreign linguistics, from the pioneers of dialectology of the XIX century to modern theories illustrating a complex spectrum of external factors that have a systematic influence on the phonetic and phonological form.
Key words and phrases: социофонетика, социальная диалектология, фонетика, межъязыковые контакты, лингвистическая вариация, социолингвистические факторы, sociophonetics, social dialectology, phonetics, interlingual contacts, linguistic variation, sociolinguistic factors.
