This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."
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.
