Abstract: Dressler

“Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs”

We are surrounded by signs that communicate some messages explicitly and others implicitly, through the choice and use of language(s). Linguistic Landscape Analysis (Gorter, 2006) provides a systematic methodology for examining the language of signs and interpreting the messages these choices communicate. This workshop introduces you to Linguistic Landscape Analysis (LLA) and allows you to work with authentic data from a larger study in an educational context.
