Linguistic Landscape

Linguistic landscape as a field has its origin in sociolinguistics and it is only in recent years that is has been increasingly investigated in educational context. Linguistic landscape engages with visible linguistic-semiotic signs (street signs, graffiti, stickers, pictograms etc.) in public spaces and raises questions about language use and language policy in different places and different countries. Linguistic landscape is dynamically evolving, constantly expanding its objects of investigation in different directions (schoolscape, soundscape, skinscape, homescape) and becoming increasingly multimodal and transdisciplinary.
