About this book
The 14 chapters contribute to the understanding of translanguaging as a communicative and discursive practice, which is relationally constructed and strategically deployed by individuals during everyday encounters with language and cultural diversity.
The contributions testify to translanguaging as an interdisciplinary and critical research paradigm by assembling scholars working on translanguaging from different perspectives, and a wide range of social, cultural, and geographical contexts.
This volume contributes to the further development of new theoretical and analytical tools for the investigation of translanguaging as everyday practice, and how and why language practices are constructed, negotiated, opposed or subverted by social actors.

“This new exciting volume adds to the growing body of literature on Translanuaging with detailed and critical accounts of the dynamic communicative practices of multilingual languages users in diverse settings. The geographical coverage is impressive. It includes a wide variety of communicative domains and styles from education to business, from policy to creative arts. The implications of the studies for theory and practice will be far-reaching and long-lasting.” (Li Wei, Chair of Applied Linguistics, University College London, UK)
