Semiotics has had an enormous impact on interdisciplinary studies over the past twenty years, yet in spite of its methodological and practical influences on literary criticism, art, architecture and music to name but a few areas, no full-length study of its applications to second-language education has appeared to date. Semiotics and Second-Language Pedagogy presents a coherent synthesis of semiotics and second-language pedagogical concepts. In addition to a speculative part, it has an applied part where theoretical insights are made explicit and shown to operate in actual teaching.

About the Author:

The Author: James W. Brown is Professor of French at Dalhousie University, where he teaches Nineteenth-Century French Literature, Semiotics and Poetics. His research in the area of second-language education includes a co-edited volume entitled Essays in Applied Visual Semiotics, and numerous articles on second-language theory and practice. Professor Brown has also published two books on the semiotics of alimentary discourse, Fictional Meals and their Function in the French Novel, 1789-1848 and Littérature et Nourriture.

Review:

«Much in second-language teaching and acquisition goes beyond the central structure of the language that is being taught. Few studies, however, have so far been exploring the role of semiotics in second-language pedagogy, expression, communication, and understanding.
James W. Brown's new book succeeds in filling this gap, particularly in the area of visual pedagogy. His is a remarkable and eminently readable synthesis of educational semiotics for second-language specialists and language teachers.» (Rostislav Kocourek, Dalhousie University)
«Professor Brown's book is a comprehensive, insightful discussion of possible applications of semiotics to second-language teaching. It is a commendable work of interest to everyone in our profession.» (Hector Hammerly, Simon Fraser University)
