Book Cover
The Handbook of Language Socialization

The Handbook of Language Socialization presents a comprehensive survey of the latest research and our current state of knowledge in this flourishing field, which lies at the intersection of anthropology, linguistics, and psychology. At its heart is the important question of how, in the course of acquiring language, children become speakers and members of communities. The Handbook brings together the history of this recent field and its latest developments and best insights from international fieldwork, including those gleaned from second and heritage language socialization, literacy and media socialization, and socialization beyond childhood and across the lifespan and institutional settings.

The Handbook of Language Socialization is an important resource focusing on the social and cultural implications of children's communicative development and those aspects of language acquisition that have been left out of previous linguistic and psychological studies.
