Description:

Truly global coverage of language and education
Necessary reference for every university and college library
Essential research on Discourse and Education
The text of each review is followed by a reference list containing about 30
key references mentioned in the text

This volume surveys the research on discourse and education, adopting the
broadest definition of ‘discourse’. *Discourse as ‘talk-in-interaction’,
commonly espoused in studies of classroom discourse since the 1970s.
*Discourse as ‘ways of understanding and constituting the social world’,
the critical, post-structuralist view of discourse as a source of power.
Several themes resonate across the four sections and the chapters within
them: *Widening the scope of enquiry, combining approaches to discourse
*Linking the study of discourse with ethnography *Dealing with the changing
nature of contemporary patterns of communication

This is one of ten volumes of the Encyclopedia of Language and Education
published by Springer. The Encyclopedia bears testimony to the dynamism and
evolution of the language and education field, as it confronts the
ever-burgeoning and irrepressible linguistic diversity and ongoing
pressures and expectations placed on education around the world.
