Title: Perspectives on Language and Language Development
Subtitle: Essays in honor of Ruth A. Berman
Edited By: Dorit Diskin Ravid
Hava Bat-Zeev Shyldkrot
Description:

Perspectives on Language and Language Development brings together new
perspectives on language, discourse and language development in 31 chapters
by leading scholars from several countries with diverging backgrounds and
disciplines. It is a comprehensive overview of language as a rich,
multifaceted system, inspired by the lifework of Ruth A. Berman. Edited by
Dorit Ravid and Hava Bat-Zeev Shyldkrot, both from Tel Aviv University,
Israel, the book offers state-of-the-art portrayals of linguistic and
psycholinguistic phenomena with new insights on the interrelations of
language structure, discourse theory, and the development of language and
literacy. The volume presents innovative investigations on the interface of
language and narrative in a broad range of languages, with a section
devoted to linguistic studies of Modern Hebrew. It traces the development
of language and literacy from early childhood through adolescence to
maturity in spoken and written contexts, and in monolingual as well as
multilingual perspectives.

Linguists, psycholinguists, discourse scholars, cognitive psychologists,
language teachers, education experts, and clinicians working in the field
of language and discourse will find this book extremely useful both as a
textbook and as a source of information.
