Title: Knowledge About Language
Edited By: NancyH.Hornberger
URL: http://www.springer.com/education+%26+language/linguistics/book/978-90-481-9469-8
Description:

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

The 29 chapters in this volume offer insight in the various
interdisciplinary approaches to the study of knowledge about language or
language awareness. They reflect the breadth of the area and chart its
possible development in topics such as: *Language awareness in the mother
tongue and second and foreign languages *Studies aimed at improving the
teaching of languages in educational settings *Studies of Psycholinguistic
processes, explicit and implicit knowledge *Bilingualism and
multilingualism, in particular metalinguistic awareness *Critical language
awareness, social practices of language and the role of power and ideology

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.
