Description

This set seeks to enable language and education practitioners, researchers, and interested lay readers alike to get a sense of the range of issues being pursued in language and education research and the array of methods employed to do so. A major assumption of the volume is that both micro and macro perspectives and both social and linguistic levels of analysis are critical for an understanding of the interaction between language and education. It is organized in four parts, focusing in turn on language and education in relation to society, variation, culture, and interaction. The contributing scholars hail from five continents and nine countries; they represent a great diversity of linguistic, cultural, and disciplinary traditions.

Review quote

... this encyclopedia is excellent: comprehensive, international, clear, to the point and politically aware. Every student teacher should have access to it, and it will be an essential resource for policy makers who want to rely on solid research rather than - as so often in this area - emotion and prejudice.' Raphael Salkie in The Times Higher Education Supplement An extremely valuable contribution to the field, this encyclopedia should be included in the collection of every serious academic library.' T. Reagan in Choice, 36:1 (1998)
