Abstract

First proposed in 1972, the field of Educational Linguistics deals with the intersection of linguistics and language sciences with formal and informal education. In the past half-century, it has been recognized as a method of planning and implementing language education and working to overcome the gap between home and school languages that affects 40% of the children in the world. New developments involve recognizing the existence of complex linguistic repertoires in an increasingly digital world.
