Educational linguistics

Having spent six formative years working for Michael Halliday, I am keen to see more linguistics in schools, whatever we call it – ‘Knowledge About Language’, `Language Awareness’, `English Language’ or even `Linguistics’!  I have written a book and numerous papers about education (mostly about grammar), and more recently I’ve given a number of talks about language education and have even contributed to the Language Log.

I am a founder-member of CLIE (the Committee for Linguistics in Education, and also of the LAGB Education Committee.

My web-site contains a number of relevant information pages:

For other educational resources, check the following:

  • Education on the Internet – a very large and helpfully annotated directory of resources for teachers, including English teachers. Paired with a monthly newsletter listing recent innovations.
  • VISL – an ambitious and largely successful web site in Denmark for teaching grammar (of English or a dozen other languages!) by IT. Zap adverbs or test the (not infallible) computer’s grammatical analyses.
  • Language education in the news – a daily collection of media reports on UK language education.

    of the remarks on Richard (‘Dick’) Hudson | Education. I actually do have a
    couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be just me or
    does it appear like some of the remarks look as if they are
    coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And,
    if you are writing at additional places, I would like to keep up with anything new
    you have to post. Could you post a list of the complete urls of
