Our search has the following Google-type functionality:
If you use '+' at the start of a word, that word will be present in the search results.
eg. Harry +Potter
Search results will contain 'Potter'.
If you use '-' at the start of a word, that word will be absent in the search results.
eg. Harry -Potter
Search results will not contain 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between 2 words, then both those words will be present in the search results.
eg. Harry AND Potter
Search results will contain both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between 2 words, then either or both of those words will be present in the search results.
eg. 'Harry OR Potter'
Search results will contain just 'Harry', or just 'Potter', or both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, that word will be absent in the search results. (This is the same as using the minus symbol).
eg. 'Harry NOT Potter'
Search results will not contain 'Potter'.
If you use double quotation marks around words, those words will be present in that order.
eg. "Harry Potter"
Search results will contain 'Harry Potter', but not 'Potter Harry'.
If you use '*' in a word, it performs a wildcard search, as it signifies any number of characters. (Searches cannot start with a wildcard).
Search results will contain words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er', such as 'Potter'.

Joyce Milambiling, University of Northern Iowa ...a substantial, one-volume book that defines and presents many aspects of the field of educational linguistics... very useful to have material on so many different aspects of language and education in one place, as well as to have access to bibliographies that have been compiled by these authors who come from such disparate disciplines... Many of the contributors are internationally known for writing on their chosen topic...fulfills the mission of an encyclopedia in that the contents are a comprehensive treatment of a particular branch of knowledge and go beyond merely defining the topics and sub-topics... Concise Encyclopedia of Educational Linguistics will be a valuable addition to the reference secton of libraries and to the reference book collections of scholars who would like to have an authoritative encyclopedia on educational linguistics. LINGUIST List Raphael Salkie, University of Brighton ...a wide-ranging, informative resource which should be in every college library... a rich and valuable book, and I shall recommend it often and enthusiastically to my students. It summarises a huge amount of material in an intelligible way, and readers will come away from it better informed, more effective and more civilised. The Times Higher Education Supplement John Edwards, St. Francis Xavier University, Canada This 'spin-off volume' is a very welcome one ... The single greatest strength of this collection is the expertise of the contributors. Spolsky has assembled here a stellar cast. Time and again one finds the articles to be written by just the authors one would have selected oneself. ... Overall, I find this an extremely useful compendium. ... It would be wrong to think of this encyclopedia solely in terms of students and beginners. Its level makes it a useful reference for all who wish a brief but intelligent resume of language areas outside their own expertise. Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development Peter D. Pumfrey ...there is much here for any professional involved in research and practice related both to education and language. ...In its field, this book is an conceptual cornucopia. As a book of reference, its users will find it an invaluable research resource. ...Without a doubt, it is 'user-friendly' by virtue of its organisation and the excellent indexing. Psychology of Education Review ...as a successful reference source for all researchers in the field. It provides state-of-the-art description of all the topics of interest to language educators and all those concerned with making and implementing policy in language education. ...a most important reference book for all libraries in colleges, university departments and educational institutes.
