In this paper we review current findings in the interdisciplinary field of sociophonetics, focusing on fieldwork- and corpus-based analyses of speaker- and group-specific phonetic and phonological variation in selected Romance languages. We show how multiple sources of allophonic variation represent a rich potential for the expression of social-indexical meaning in both wider and lesser-known varieties of Romance.
