Ecoloxía e lingua: unha estraña parella?

The author attempts to offer a view of everything that has been included under the label ecolinguistics (or similar ones) in the course of the still brief history of the term. She then examines the possible application of ecological thought to the study of languages and holds that this approach must lead the linguistic disciplines to an ethical commitment to linguodiversity.
