Main Article Content

Vannak SORN


This academic article presented a synthesis of a new Paradigm and Methodology: Ecolinguistics perspectives as the follows: 1) introduction of the Ecolinguistics theory to study the relationship between language and the physical ecosystem, the significant elements of knowledge connecting language and ecology, an ecology turn relating to language to the environment, nature, and new paradigms of linguistics, developing linguistic theories looking at human beings not only part of society but also part of a larger ecology, independent livings with systematic coexistence, 2) language, discourse, ecology, and Ecolinguistics, and 3) concepts of Ecolinguistics analysis. The methodology of Ecolinguistics interacted with language and ecological diversity the study of messages, road signs, billboards, analysis of messages related to the environment. The study of words in a language was related to the local environment. Studying language combinations surrounds students in multicultural schools and dialects in a geographic location and other diverse areas. The diversity derived from different perceptions of the concept of "ecology" and the concept of "interaction of other things" to the concept related to environmentalism. However, linguistics can be used to address environmental and ecological problems from climate change and the loss of biosecurity as well as an environmental justice. Therefore, this academic article was a study, analysis of concepts, Ecolinguistics theory, literature review and analysis of new language paradigms (linguistics paradigm) giving an importance to ecosystems and the current world of environment.
