KNOWLEDGE AND DISCOURSE
edited by Colin Barron, Nigel Bruce, and David Nunan

Knowledge and Discourse presents an ecological approach to the study
of discourse in social, academic and professional practices. It brings
together distinguished scholars from diverse cultures - India, China,
Australia, Canada among others - and discipines - linguistics,
anthropology, sociology, philosophy. The chapters collectively
illustrate the ecological approach by exploring how language makes
connections between subjective experiences as people construct meaning
and action.

The book offers the reader a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to
the study of language as discourse, questioning traditional views of
disciplinary knowledge and the role of discouse in the pursuit,
construction and compartmentalisation of such knowledge. Through the
variety of disciplines, experiences and approaches, the contributors
show how the world and word are contingent on each other. The notions
of connectivity, contingency and change are themes that run through
the book, and in the interweaving of these themes readers will find
persuasive illustrations of an ecological approach to applied
linguistics.

Colin Barron, Nigel Bruce and David Nunan are all based at the English
Centre, Hong Kong University.
