Studies in Ecolinguistics

Series Editor(s):
Marta Bogusawska-Tafelska
Subject: Linguistics

Series Description

The Studies in Ecolinguistics series of linguistic monographs arose from a growing intellectual inclination to build a linguistic meta-theory that is paradigmatically grounded in the post-Newtonian model of life within the holistic paradigm. Hence, it is a publication plane for more expanded scholarly proposals within language and communication studies today, where communication processes are perceived as life processes on various layers of life systems’ organization.

Due to the multidisciplinary character of linguistic interfaces in the contemporary linguistic research, the series contains volumes covering adjacent and naturally cooperating areas of expertise, including mainstream formal and cognitive linguistics, cutting-edge ecological linguistics, and neighbouring scholarly fields such as biosemiotics, ecopsychology and holistically-oriented educational studies, to enumerate but a few. Researchers working in these areas as well as practitioners will find the series of particular interest.
