Translanguaging: Language, Bilingualism and Education. New York: Palgrave Macmillan, ISBN By pointing out that bilingualism, multilingualism, and plurilingualism have traditionally been conceptualized as two or more autonomous language systems, the authors suggest that a post-structuralist approach to language, one that views language as fluid and dynamic rather than static, sets the groundwork for a translanguaging approach that can transform the concept of bilingualism. This book appeals to a wide audience of both undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to educators and administrators alike. Part II chapters 3—7 explores how translanguaging works as a pedagogical practice and focuses on what it can offer bilingual education. By pointing out the limitations of fixed notions of language acquisition, this chapter is most significant in arguing for a more complex and fluid model of bilingualism.
