Title: Directions and Prospects for Educational Linguistics
Edited By: Francis M. Hult
URL: http://www.springer.com/education+%26+language/linguistics/book/978-90-481-9135-2
Series Title: Educational Linguistics
Description:

“This anthology is a testament to the vitality of Educational Linguistics
and its transdisciplinary, problem-posing approach. With chapters ranging
from the ethnopoetics of oral narrative to the use of eye-tracking
technology to study recasts in CMC, this collection extends the boundaries
of educational linguistics in significant, interesting, and innovative
ways. In so doing, it will inspire much conversation about where this
growing field is heading in the decades to come.”

Professor Diane Larsen-Freeman, University of Michigan, USA

“This edited collection provides us with a unique contribution as it
demonstrates the applicability of a varied repertoire of innovative
research methods to diverse language learning programs.”

Professor Elana Shohamy, Tel Aviv University, Israel

“This exciting collection includes original analyses of communicative
actions and interactions in multiple international and multimodal settings
to illustrate the promise of educational linguistics. A must-read for all
those curious about contemporary applied linguistic scholarship and its
pedagogical relevance.”

Professor Mary McGroarty, Northern Arizona University, USA

“Contributors to this volume have been in the vanguard of a bold,
transdisciplinary movement that has re-tuned and reinvigorated the field of
educational linguistics in ways that are uniquely suited to contemporary
research on language in education. The chapters make challenging new
research-theory-policy-practice connections and draw on cutting edge
research—a compelling read for both new and established researchers.”

Professor Marilyn Martin-Jones, University of Birmingham, UK
