Abstract:

The text is organized into three thematic units - "What is Language and How
is It Acquired?"; "How Does Language Change?"; and "What is Literacy?". To
achieve both breadth and depth - that is, to provide a "big picture" view
of basic linguistics and at the same time make it specific enough for the
beginner - a selection of readings, including personal language narratives,
is provided to both introduce and clarify linguistic concepts. The
readings, by well-known theoretical and applied linguists and researchers
from various disciplines, are diverse in level and range of topics and vary
in level of linguistic formalism.

Pedagogical features: This text is designed for a range of courses in
English and language arts, bilingualism, applied linguistics, and ESL
courses in teacher education programs. Each unit contains a substantive
introduction to the topic, followed by the readings. Each reading concludes
with Questions to Think About including one Extending Your Understanding
question, and a short list of Terms to Define. Each unit ends with
additional Extending Your Understanding and Making Connections activities
that engage readers in applying what they have read to teaching and
suggested projects and a bibliography of Print and Web Resources. The
readings and apparatus are arranged so that the material can be modified to
fit many course plans and schemes of presentation. To help individual
instructors make the most effective use of the text in specific classes, a
set of matrixes is provided suggesting configurations of readings for
different types of linguistics and education classes.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
