This paper investigates ecolinguistics and its subdisciplines Ecology of Languages and Ecological Linguistics with particular focus on the border-concept. On the one hand, the first research field exploits technical terminology and principles of natural sciences – in particular ecology – metaphorically, to provide linguistics with a new perspective for the analysis of language contact phenomena. On the other hand, Ecological Linguistics analyses contemporary environmental discourses by means of a transdisciplinary linguistic approach. In this sense, the paper illustrates how this discipline within applied linguistics investigates boundaries between language varieties and crosses traditional borders between scientific disciplines as well.
