Abstract

Ecolinguistics is a new interdisciplinary field that studies the relationship between language and environment. The link between language and environment is based on how human beings behave the natural world under the influence of thoughts, concepts, ideologies and worldviews, all of which are formed by language. It is through the language that consumer-branded identities are built up and life is set to accumulate, and it is through a language that people resist consumerism, and people are encouraged to be "more, not to have more." Through language, mentally, the world of nature is reduced to objects or resources that are used exclusively to capture humans, and through language, individuals are encouraged to respect and protect life-supporting systems. So, in simple terms, ecolinguistics is a critique of forms of language that promote environmental degradation, and help find new forms of language that persuade people to protect the world of nature. In this article, Ecolingistics and its role as a mediator between language and environment is disscused. At the end, it is concluded that by virtue of Semiotics, the link between language and environment gets more prominent and ecolingustic studies arises.
