ABSTRACT

ENThe volume is a reflection on the status of educational linguistics as a field of investigation in its own right. The author’s objective is to outline a theoretical framework for language education and teaching that is independent from the cultural features of the context in which the language curriculum is implemented. This goal seems to be intended by the author as a way to organize the many and often fragmentary trends and threads of research in the field and to provide scholars and practitioners with a benchmark against which they can contrast their research and professional practice decisions.  

Key words: educational linguistics, language education, language teaching, theoretical paradigms  
ESEste volumen es una reflexión sobre la situación de la lingüística educativa como campo de investigación independiente. El objetivo del autor es trazar un marco teórico para la educación lingüística y la enseñanza de lenguas que no dependa de las influencias culturales del ámbito en el que se aplica el currículo lingüístico. Parece ser que el autor entiende este objetivo como una forma de organizar las numerosas y con frecuencia fragmentarias tendencias y vías de investigación en este campo y de proporcionar a los estudiosos y profesionales un esquema de referencia con el que puedan contrastar sus decisiones tanto en la investigación como en la práctica profesional.

Palabras clave: lingüística educativa, educación lingüística, enseñanza de idiomas, paradigmas teóricos
 
ITIl volume è una riflessione sullo status della linguistica educativa come ambito di ricerca a sé stante. Il fine dell’autore è quello di individuare una cornice teorica per l’educazione linguistica e l’insegnamento delle lingue che sia scevro dalle influenze culturali del luogo in cui il curriculum linguistico è progettato. L’obiettivo sembra essere inteso dall’autore come un modo di riorganizzare le molte e spesso frammentarie tendenze e direzioni di ricerca nel settore e di fornire a studiosi/e e a praticanti uno schema di riferimento rispetto al quale confrontare le proprie scelte di ricerca e di pratica professionale.  

Parole chiave: linguistica educativa, educazione linguistica, insegnamento delle lingue, paradigmi teorici
