Wiley has just launched its new Handbook of Language and Globalization, edited by Nikolas Coupland. The Handbook consists of 28 chapters by well-known sociolinguists, including our very own Ingrid Piller and Kimie Takahashi. Click here for the Table of Contents.
Advance praise from Wiley’s website:
“An enlightening and engaging collection by eminent international scholars. A major resource for the study of theoretical and pragmatic approaches to Global English, including concerns about ‘marginalization’ and ‘murder’ of languages.”
—Braj B.Kachru, Professor Emeritus, University of Illinois
“This Handbook provides a fascinating exposition of the complex, multidimensional nature of globalization as it pertains to the world’s languages. Coupland has marshalled authors at the forefront of their fields who offer a diversity of approaches and do not flinch from disputes and challenging questions. I suspect that this book will transform the discourse on globalization within linguistics and will impel a reconsideration of whether linguistic diversity is inevitably impacted by global processes.”
—Margaret Florey, Resource Network for Linguistic Diversity
