A vivid commentary on Jewish survival and Jewish speech communities that will be enjoyed by the general reader, and is essential reading for students and researchers interested in the study of Middle Eastern languages, Jewish studies, and sociolinguistics.
This volume provides a state-of-the-art snapshot of language and education
research and demonstrates ways in which local and global processes are
intertwined with language learning, use, and policies. Reflecting but also
expanding on Nancy Hornberger’s ground-breaking contributions to
educational linguistics, this book brings together leading international
scholars. Chapters present new research and cutting-edge syntheses
addressing current theoretical and methodological issues in researching
equity, access, and multilingual education. Organized around three central
themes --- bilingual education and bilingualism, the continua of
biliteracy, and policy and planning for linguistic diversity in education
--- the volume reflects the holistic and dynamic perspective on language
(in) education that is the hallmark of educational linguistics as a field.
