"Kissine offers a new theory of speech acts which is philosophically sophisticated and builds on work in cognitive science, formal semantics, and linguistic typology. This highly readable, brilliant essay is a major contribution to the field."
In this volume an international roster of scholars offer theoretical
perspectives, research reviews and empirical studies on teaching, learning
and language development in immersion education. Editors clearly define the
term "immersion" and bring together research from three distinct branches,
including foreign language ("one-way"), bilingual ("two-way") and
indigenous immersion programs. This collection aims to facilitate
cross-context dialogue and knowledge exchange.
