Title: Ecolinguistics Reader
Subtitle: Language, Ecology and Environment
Written By: Alwin Fill
Peter Mühlhäusler
Description:

Thirty years ago, a new linguistic paradigm was created when Einar Haugen,
for the first time, combined language with ecology. For Haugen, 'the
ecology of language' meant the study of the interrelations between
languages in the human mind and in the multilingual community. Since then,
a special branch of linguistics, named ecolinguistics, has developed in
which the connection between language and ecology has been established in a
variety of ways and by using a multitude of methods and approaches. This
reader contains important articles from all the different fields of
ecolinguistics - a volume long overdue for a discipline now recognized as a
significant contribution to variety within the subject.
