The ecological perspective on language and language education has in recent
years become a major focus of interest in the fields of second language
teaching and learning, and linguistics and education in general. This is
the first book-length attempt to provide a comprehensive overview of an
ecology of language learning, including both theoretical discussions on
language, semiotics, emergence, and self, and the practical consequences of
an ecological view for classroom work.
This book is of interest to all language educators, second and foreign
language teachers and researchers, and other education professionals.
