Novelizations and their Pedagogic Potential

Until recently novelizations have been deprecated in terms of their literary value and ignored in discussions of language teaching. This article seeks to redress this neglect by drawing attention to three aspects of novelizations: firstly, that they are beginning to be recognized in print as a works worthy of literary and academic interest; secondly, that they constitute a heterogeneous text form which includes differing kinds of novelization; and thirdly, that they have interesting potential for use in education, including in the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language.
