Given the renewed interest in “identity” within applied linguistics and sociolinguistics, and the difficulty and relative unfamiliarity of current theories of subjectivity for students in these fields, this book meets a clear need: an accessible introduction to theories of subjectivity and the contexts in which they arise for students of language. These include language and gender, sexuality, ethnicity, nationalism, racism and disability, subjectivity in second language learning, and language and subjectivity in testing, institutional and forensic settings.

More Details..

The last few decades have seen a stretching and exchange of local, regional and national languages, identities, cultures, and economies worldwide as a consequence of globalisation and technology development. Significantly, the languages of the Middle East, Africa, Asia, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and Russia have been attracting increasing strategic, commercial and civic attention. Collectively referred to as ‘Languages of the Wider World’ (LWW), these languages are important given the emergence of new centres of capital and cultural accumulation in the 21st century, such as Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRICs). This volume focuses on LWW in use, and on their teaching and learning. It ranges from a highly localized focus (on learners and teachers of Community/Heritage Languages), to broader national and international foci (on policy makers and multilingualism; on teachers in primary, secondary and tertiary systems). It aims to inspire researchers and practitioners to work on languages other than the ones that have been the mainstay of the field to facilitate the development of a vibrant and critical community of enquiry in Languages of the Wider World.

This book was originally published as a special issue of the Language Learning Journal.

More Details..

"… focuses on issues at the forefront of heritage language teaching and research. Its state-of-the-art presentation will make this volume a standard reference book for investigators, teachers, and students. It will also generate further research and discussion, thereby advancing the field."

María Carreira, California State University – Long Beach, United States

"In our multilingual and multicultural society there is an undeniable need to address issues of bilingualism, language maintenance, literacy development, and language policy. The subject of this book is timely…. It has potential to make a truly significant contribution to the field."

María Cecilia Colombi, University of California – Davis, United States

This volume presents a multidisciplinary perspective on teaching heritage language learners. Contributors from theoretical and applied linguistics, sociolinguistics, psychology, educational policy, and pedagogy specialists explore policy and societal issues, present linguistic case studies, and discuss curricular issues, offering both research and hands-on innovation.

- The term "heritage language speaker" refers to an individual exposed to a language spoken at home but who is educated primarily in English.

Research and curriculum design in heritage language education is just beginning. Heritage language pedagogy, including research associated with the attrition, maintenance, and growth of heritage language proficiency, is rapidly becoming a field in its own right within foreign language education. This book fills a current gap in both theory and pedagogy in this emerging field. It is a significant contribution to the goals of formulating theory, developing informed classroom practices, and creating enlightened programs for students who bring home-language knowledge into the classroom.

Heritage Language Education: A New Field Emerging is dedicated to Professor Russell Campbell (1927-2003), who was instrumental in advocating for the creation of the field of heritage language education.

This second edition of The Routledge Concise Compendium of the World’s Languages has been completely revised to provide up-to-date and accurate descriptions of a wide cross-section of natural-language systems. All cultural and historical notes as well as statistical data for each language have been checked, updated and in many cases expanded.

Now offering an even broader range of languages including a greater number of the lesser-known ones, such as Cree, Maltese and Haitian Creole, this new edition of The Routledge Concise Compendium covers a total of 111 languages.

Key features include:

  • complete rewriting and systematization of the phonology sections for all languages
  • provision of IPA symbol grids arranged by articulatory feature and by alphabetic resemblance to facilitate use of the new phonology sections
  • expansion of morphology descriptions for all languages
  • provision of new illustrative text samples
  • addition of a glossary of technical terms
  • comparative tables of the numerals 1-10 in all languages covered, and also grouped by family
  • classification by genetic relationship of all languages covered.

Using the wealth of recent developments and research in language typology and broadened availability of descriptive data, this new incarnation of The Routledge Concise Compendium brings a much-loved survey emphatically into the twenty-first century for a new generation of readers.

The Routledge Concise Compendium of the World’s Languages remains the ideal compact reference for all interested linguistics and professionals alike.

Gary King is Series Advisor for the Roultedge Colloquials and the author of numerous books on language and linguistics. He is also UCAS co-ordinator and a lecturer at a large sixth-form college.

  • expansion of morphology descriptions for all languages
  • provision of new illustrative text samples
  • addition of a glossary of technical terms
