Dear all,

We would like to draw your attention to our new edited volume on
Ecolinguistics:

Martin Doering, Hermine Penz and Wilhelm Trampe (eds.): Language, Signs and
Nature. Ecolinguistic Dimensions of Environmental Discourse. Essays in
Honour of Alwin Fill. Tuebingen: Stauffenburg.

Synopsis:
Language, Signs and Nature: Ecolinguistic Dimensions of Environmental Discourse
is both a Festschrift for Alwin Fill and at the same time an up-to-date survey
of recent trends in research in Ecolinguistics - a relatively new and
interdisciplinary field of research in linguistics. The volume brings together
theoretical work and applied analyses on the interaction between language and
its cultural and natural environment by prominent researchers. It covers a wide
range of topics including cultural evolution, natural signs and
sign-worldsystems, the ecology of grammar, the discourse of biodiversity, the
construction of the world through discourse by the anti-green movement and
intelligent design creationism, the metaphorical framing of epidemics, etc.

The book will thus be of interest not only to the ecolinguistic community, but
also to the neighbouring fields of environmental studies, human geography,
discourse analysis, semiotics, public policy, and linguistics in general.

Best wishes, Martin Doering
