Review of Ecolinguistics Research from the Year 2010 to the Year 2021 ——Based on the Survey of CNKI Core Journals

Yun Wang


through literature survey, this paper sorts out the research context of ecolinguistics in China in recent ten years, and clarifies
the concepts of macro ecolinguistics and micro ecolinguistics, institutional ecolinguistics and system ecolinguistics, analysis of ecological
discourse and ecological analysis of discourse. According to the research content and theme, the domestic ecological linguistics research
is classifi ed as follows: ① theoretical exploration (Research) ② language development and protection ③ research paradigm ④ discourse
analysis (ecological discourse analysis) ⑤ language teaching and learning ability ⑥ translation research ⑦ localization research. Through
the survey, it is found that most of the researches on ecolinguistics in China remain at the level of theoretical exploration, while the applied
research and empirical research are weak; Language teaching and localization research began to show an upward trend.
