Abstract:
			
Environment of Language is designed for use both as an introduction to
the growing field of ecolinguistics and to add a linguistic
perspective to environmental studies, environmental impact planning,
ecotourism and philosophy. It deals with such major questions as the
interrelationship between language and the world, environmental
problems, and the importance of preserving language diversity. The
book is structured in such a way as to make it ideal for use as a
textbook at university level but great care has been taken to ensure
that its contents are also accessible to the interested layman. This
book shows how language and the world are interrelated. It examines
the consequences of this ecolinguistic perspective in a wide range of
domains including ecotourism, advertising, green campaigns, and
environmental impact assessments. It provides the concepts and
linguistic tools needed to gain a critical understanding of the role
of language in shaping environmental attitudes and actions. The author
argues that environmental problems require multiple perspectives for
their solution and that preserving language diversity is a necessary
part of preserving biodiversity. This book can be used as an
introduction to the growing field of ecolinguistics or to add a
linguistic perspective to environmental studies, environmental impact
planning, ecotourism and philosophy. It is informed by virtually the
entire body of writings about language and ecology in a number of
languages, and by the author's personal contacts with some of the main
players in this field. Apart from its comprehensive
(interdisciplinary) database, the book aims at developing a theory or
research tool with applications in many areas of knowledge.
