Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This is one of nine volumes in a handbook series on applied linguistics. Edited by Hellinger (English linguistics, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-U., Germany) and Pauwels (linguistics, U. of Western Australia, Australia), it concerns diversity and change in language and communication. Thematically, it addresses language minorities and inequality, language planning and language change, language variation and change in institutional contexts, and the discourse of linguistic diversity and language change. In conformity with the rest of the series, the volume adopts an explicitly problem solving perspective and presents it material in a relatively non-technical manner.
