This book, addressed to experienced and novice language educators, provides an up-to-date overview of sociolinguistics, reflecting changes in the global situation and the continuing evolution of the field and its relevance to language education around the world. Topics covered include nationalism and popular culture, style and identity, creole languages, critical language awareness, gender and ethnicity, multimodal literacies, classroom discourse, and ideologies and power. Whether considering the role of English as an international language or innovative initiatives in Indigenous language revitalization, in every context of the world sociolinguistic perspectives highlight the fluid and flexible use of language in communities and classrooms, and the importance of teacher practices that open up spaces of awareness and acceptance of --and access to--the widest possible communicative repertoire for students.

Following an introduction that positions the field of educational linguistics historically and conceptually, the volume presents 15 contributions by leading scholars that cover the four areas most central to the field: - Language teaching, language learning and literacy (Widdowson, Bialistok, Cohen & Allison); - Language testing (Bachman, Davies, and Shohamy); - Multilingualism, minority languages and language planning (Bratt-Paulston, Fishman, Lambert, Amara, de Bot & van Els); - Language policy (Clyne, Tucker, Donato & Murday, McNamara & Lo Bianco, and Hornberger). New Perspectives and Issues in Educational Language Policy is published in honour of Bernard Dov Spolsky and reflects his impact on applied linguistics in general and educational linguistics in particular.

This volume offers fresh perspectives on a controversial issue in applied linguistics and language teaching by focusing on the use of the first language in communicative or immersion-type classrooms. It includes new work by both new and established scholars in educational scholarship, second language acquisition, and sociolinguistics, as well as in a variety of languages, countries, and educational contexts. Through its focus at the intersection of theory, practice, curriculum and policy, the book demands a reconceptualization of code-switching as something that both proficient and aspiring bilinguals do naturally, and as a practice that is inherently linked with bilingual code-switching.

Noam Chomsky, der weltbekannte Sprachtheoretiker und streitbare Gesellschaftskritiker wurde am 7. Dezember 1998 siebzig Jahre alt. Zu diesem Anlass hat der Philo Verlag einen Gratulationsband herausgebracht, der das Spannungsfeld von Chomskys Denken zwischen Sprache und Politik anhand seiner eigenen Arbeiten ausloten will. Der Band umfast exemplarische und bisher nicht übersetzte Arbeiten Chomskys von Ende der 60er Jahre bis heute (u.a. den berühmten Aufsatz "Some tasks for the left" von 1969). Damit wird die Vielfalt und der Antrieb seines Denkens auch all jenen zugänglich gemacht, die den Linguisten, aber nicht den politischen Philosophen, den libertären Sozialisten, aber nicht den scharfsinnigen Analytiker abendländischer Staatsmacht kennen. Der Autor: Noam Chomsky, geb. 1928; Professor für Linguistik und Philosophie am Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Begründer der generativen Transformationsgrammatik. Neben sprachwissenschaftlichen Problemen setzt sich Chomsky immer wieder kritisch mit aktuellen wirtschafts- und medienpolitischen Fragestellungen auseinander. 1998 erschien von Noam Chomsky bei Philo "Haben und Nichthaben"

It is a comprehensive overview of language as a rich, multifaceted system, inspired by the lifework of Ruth A. Berman. Edited by Dorit Ravid and Hava Bat-Zeev Shyldkrot, both from Tel Aviv University, Israel, the book offers state-of-the-art portrayals of linguistic and psycholinguistic phenomena with new insights on the interrelations of language structure, discourse theory, and the development of language and literacy.

It traces the development of language and literacy from early childhood through adolescence to maturity in spoken and written contexts, and in monolingual as well as multilingual perspectives. Linguists, psycholinguists, discourse scholars, cognitive psychologists, language teachers, education experts, and clinicians working in the field of language and discourse will find this book extremely useful both as a textbook and as a source of information.
