Book Description

This collection brings together scholarship in theoretical and applied linguistics, literary and cultural studies, and second language studies. The contributors here investigate the nature of linguistic, cultural, and cognitive diversity, offering rich insights for theoretical advancement in multiple disciplines. Their theoretical and practical explications on discourse, literature, and linguistic structure contribute to a multifaceted conversation about diversity in language structure and use. From the relationships between eye contact and mindfulness, to the question of the universality of critical thinking, the topics in this volume represent a wide variety of approaches to the study of language.

Specific areas in which advances are made here include sociolinguistics, second language pedagogy, and literature studies.
