The Routledge Handbook of Ecolinguistics, Hardback Book

The Routledge Handbook of Ecolinguistics Hardback

Edited by Alwin Fill, Hermine Penz

Part of the Routledge Handbooks in Linguistics series


The Routledge Handbook of Ecolinguistics is the first comprehensive exploration into the field of ecolinguistics, also known as language ecology. Organized into three sections that treat the different topic areas of ecolinguistics, the Handbook begins with chapters on language diversity, language minorities and language endangerment, with authors providing insight into the link between the loss of languages and the loss of species.

It continues with an overview of the role of language and discourse in describing, concealing, and helping to solve environmental problems.

With discussions on new orientations and topics for further exploration in the field, chapters in the last section show ecolinguistics as a pacesetter into a new scientific age.

This Handbook is an excellent resource for students and researchers interested in language and the environment, language contact, and beyond.
