Francis M. Hult is Assistant Professor of Applied Linguistics at the

University in Sweden and at the University of Pennsylvania in the
United States. He is the founder and manager of the Educational
Linguistics List. His publications have appeared in the journals World

"Spolsky and Hult have put together a book that is not only
authoritative, but also original and innovative in scope and
treatment. The editors have succeeded in combining the extensive
experience of a senior scholar and the fresh insights of a junior
scholar with those of the international contributors in order to make
this a book that transforms our understandings of educational
linguistics for today." Ofelia Garcia, Columbia University
