Abstract:

This book focuses on linguistic landscapes in present-day urban settings.In a wide-ranging collection of studies of major world cities, the authorsinvestigate both the forces that shape linguistic landscape and the impactof the linguistic landscape on the wider social and cultural reality. Notonly does the book offer a wealth of case studies and comparisons tocomplement existing publications on linguistic landscape, but the editorsaim to investigate the nature of a field of study which is characterised byits interest in 'ordered disorder'. The editors aspire to delve intolinguistic landscape beyond its appearance as a jungle of jumbled andirregular items by focusing on the variations in linguistic landscapeconfigurations and recognising that it is but one more field of the shapingof social reality under diverse, uncoordinated and possibly incongruentstructuration principles.
