Studies in Language and Language Education

Essays in Honor of Elite Olshtain

Synopsis
Studies in Language and Language Education – Essays in Honor of Elite Olshtain is a collection of state-of-the-art articles on current issues in language education, examined from individual and societal perspectives. The chapters address these issues by exploring empirical evidence from written and spoken forms of language, following a variety of communicative, educational, developmental and cultural research agendas. Together, the works in this volume create a continuum ranging from infancy to adulthood, in mono- or multilingual contexts and among native and immigrant populations. This book is a tribute to Elite Olshtain's wide array of academic endeavors, and will be of great interest to researchers, pre- and post-qualifying practitioners and students at the graduate and post-graduate levels, in the domains of language acquisition, multilingualism, discourse analysis, language and education, learning and teaching, language planning and language policy.
