This formidable selection of papers reflects the psycholinguistic and
sociolinguistic underpinnings of the interface between language and
education. 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. The
breadth and coverage makes this an indispensable title for future
research in the field of educational linguistics.
