Title: Language, Ecology and Society
Subtitle: A Dialectical Approach
Written By: Jørgen Christian Bang
Jørgen Døør
Edited By: Sune Vork Steffensen
Joshua Nash
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com
Description:

'Language, Ecology and Society' presents a view of language and ecology
from a dialectical perspective. In this analysis, language is seen as a
multidimensional phenomenon, which both shapes and is shaped by mind,
nature and society.

Contributing to the field of ecolinguistics, this volume proposes a new
paradigm termed Dialectical Linguistics, pioneered by Jørgen Christian Bang
and Jørgen Døør and based on research spanning three decades. The book
argues for a politically and morally responsible approach to language and
linguistics. The book opens with an introduction by Sune Vork Steffensen
outlining the theory of Dialectical Linguistics and the history of
ecolinguistics and stressing the importance of Bang and Døør's contribution
to this global movement.
