Book Information

   

Title: Linguistic Landscape
Subtitle: Expanding the Scenery
URL: http://routledge.com/9780415988735
Description:

In this comprehensive and pioneering volume, language scholars from around
the world examine the "linguistic landscape" from multiple perspectives –
theoretical, methodological, and critical. Written by widely recognized
experts, the articles in Linguistic Landscape analyze linguistic landscapes
in a range of international contexts. Dozens of photographs illustrate the
use of language in the environment – the words and images displayed and
exposed in public spaces. Suitable for graduate or advanced undergraduate
students in applied linguistics, sociolinguistics, and language policy
studies, Linguistic Landscape is a vital contribution to a burgeoning field.
