Title: Dialogue With Bakhtin on Second and Foreign Language Learning
Subtitle: New Perspectives
Edited By: JoanKellyHall
LudmilaA.Marchenkova
Description:

This volume is the first to explore links between the Russian linguist
Mikhail Bakhtin's theoretical insights about language and practical
concerns with second and foreign language learning and teaching. Situated
within a strong conceptual framework and drawing from a rich empirical
base, it reflects recent scholarship in applied linguistics that has begun
to move away from formalist views of language as universal, autonomous
linguistic systems, and toward an understanding of language as dynamic
collections of cultural resources. According to Bakhtin, the study of
language is concerned with the dialogue existing between linguistic
elements and the uses to which they are put in response to the conditions
of the moment. Such a view of language has significant implications for
current understandings of second- and foreign-language learning.

This is a groundbreaking volume for scholars and students in applied
linguistics, language education, and language studies with an interest in
second and foreign language learning; for teacher educators; and for
teachers of languages from elementary to university levels.
