Book Cover
The Handbook of Educational Linguistics

The Handbook of Educational Linguistics offers a scientifically grounded overview that provides guidance in dealing with the language education challenges produced by globalization and growing local multilingualism. From literacy to language acquisition and policy, this comprehensive text written by an international team of specialists gathers foundational information, core themes, major findings, and practical applications into one accessible volume.

The 44 chapters provide state-of-the-art reviews of the many areas of inquiry that contribute to understanding the relationship between research and practice in language education. The volume considers the influence of neurobiology, psychology, anthropology, sociology, political science, educational studies and linguistic sciences on a field which includes language teaching and learning, language policy, education of minorities and migrants, literacy, language curricula, assessment, and endangered languages. The work reveals the complexity of this growing field while remaining accessible for students, researchers, language educators, curriculum developers, and educational policy makers.
