This revised and updated edition of Language and Learning offers teachers and those interested in the topic an explicit, articulate explanation of how language can be understood. The insights that teachers gain into the way they use language themselves will have significant implications for classroom teaching practices. This idea is central to the book's approach. In a practical and readable way, Language and Learning emphasises a range of different aspects of language, including therole of language in structuring meaning; the different purposes and uses of language; differences between spoken and written forms of language; the history of the English language; language-learning capacities of children; and the learning of second languages. This new edition emphasises how language is socially constructed, how social structures are embedded in language, and the importance of the social and cultural context in shaping an individual's language. Clearly, in multicultural Australia, it is essential that teachers recognise and respect the differences arising from our diverse society. Language and Learning familiarises readers with the technical vocabulary that is required to engage in meaningful discussion about language and learning. The relevant theoretical knowledge about phonology, morphology, linguistics, grammar and syntax, discourse analysis and the stages of language learning, is placed within the context of the classroom and teaching practices. Featuring activities and discussion questions, extensive references, and further reading, and highlighting key concepts, this book remains essential reading for teachers in training and practising teachers.
