Studies in Language and Language Education is a collection of
state-of-the-art articles on current issues in language education, examined
from individual and societal perspectives. The chapters address these
issues by exploring empirical evidence from written and spoken forms of
language, following a variety of communicative, educational, developmental
and cultural research agendas. Together, the works in this volume create a
continuum ranging from infancy to adulthood, in mono- or multilingual
contexts and native and immigrant populations.

Anat Stavans and Irit Kupferberg – an applied developmental linguist and a
discourse analyst – compiled this edited volume comprising twenty-one
chapters by leading scholars from all over the world in the areas of
language education, planning and policy, multilingualism, immigration and
identity. The chapter authors have divergent backgrounds and disciplines
which converge into a state of the art collection of the forms and
functions of language among societies, within communities and individuals
relating to language, literacy, psycholinguistics, culture and education.
