Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users"
Sprachdiagnostische Kompetenz von Sprachförderkräften [The Language Diagnostic Competency of Specialized Language Development Teachers]
The author examines the ways that specialized language development teachers assess the linguistic skills of preschool children for whom German is a second language. In a longitudinal study, she also investigates how accurately language development teachers are able to judge these skills. These multi-methodical studies contribute to the field of bilingual language education and language acquisition research.
