Language, Ecology and Society presents a view of language and ecology from a dialectical perspective. In this analysis, language is seen as a multidimensional phenomenon, which both shapes and is shaped by mind, nature and society.

Contributing to the field of ecolinguistics, this volume proposes a new paradigm termed Dialectical Linguistics, pioneered by Jørgen Christian Bang and Jørgen Døør and based on research spanning three decades. The book argues for a politically and morally responsible approach to language and linguistics.
The book opens with an introduction by Sune Vork Steffensen outlining the theory of Dialectical Linguistics and the history of ecolinguistics and stressing the importance of Bang and Døør's contribution to this global movement.

Review:

Review in The Kelvingrove Review, February 2008, Mark Godin, University of Glasgow

"...the book covers a wide scope of issues from economics to politics, from sociology to linguistics, from environmentalism to biology and so forth... It also goes without saying that nature and culture and, generally speaking, all forms of life are inseparably interwoven and that language, on the one hand, also manipulates and even controls it to a certain extent. It is a merit of the book that it makes the readership aware not only of that interdependence but also of the global threat, of the most urgent tasks resulting from it as well as of the role of language therein... This book is a valuable contribution to the discussion of ecology." Paul Danler, Moderne Sprachen, 53/1 2009
