Language and literacy : the sociolinguistics of reading and writing by Michael Stubbs( Book )
23 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in English and held by 836 libraries worldwide
Intended to provide a basis for a sociolinguistic theory of reading by placing reading within a discussion of the formal and functional characteristics of language use in social settings, this book explores the state of the art of reading and literacy, the relations between spoken and written language, and explanations of reading failure. Chapters in the book discuss the following: (1) the state of the art and some definitions of reading and literacy; (2) the primacy of spoken language and its impact on writing; (3) some principles of English spelling; (4) social pressures on English spelling; (5) the intellectual, administrative and bureaucratic functions of written language in society; (6) transcriptions, orthographies, and accents; and (7) initial literacy and explanations of educational failure, including deprivation theory. The book's final chapter provides a summary of the argument supported in the preceding chapters--that a theory of literacy must be based on the relationship between spoken and written language--and concludes that much research in the past has tended to concentrate on reading as a psychological process but often ignoring the linguistic organization of both written language and writing systems, and ignoring the social purposes of written language and literacy. This chapter also suggests topics for investigation in literacy and classroom practices. Appendixes contain symbols used in transcriptions, and points and manners of articulation, as well as suggestions for further research. (Hth)
Language, schools and classrooms by Michael Stubbs( Book )
54 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 666 libraries worldwide
The use of language in education is examined, and the ways in which recent research helps in the understanding of classroom language are explored. The relevance of such research to practicing teachers as well as to sociologists is also discussed. The volume is divided into nine chapters: (1) "Why Is Language Important in Education?"; (2) "Some Basic Sociolinguistic Concepts": language attitudes, the primitive language myth, standard and nonstandard dialects, language structure and use, and the implication of such distinctions; (3) "Bernstein's Theory of Restricted and Elaborate Codes"; (4) "Labov and the Myth of Linguistic Deprivation"; (5) "The Need for Studies of Classroom Language"; (6) "Studies of Classroom Language"; (7) "Teaching and Talking: The Hidden Curriculum of Classroom Talk"; (8) "Towards a Sociolinguistic Analysis of Language in Education"; and (9) "Some Topics for Investigation": different types of classroom language, learning the rules of classroom discourse, the language environment of a lesson and a school, child-child talk, and sociolinguistic barriers between schools and pupils. Some suggestions for further reading are provided. (Clk)
