    The articles in this special issue provide an opportunity to illustrate how the domain of “sport, language, and culture” can become a burgeoning site for future intellectual discussion. We extend this discussion by offering frameworks that (a) suggestively characterize how these articles collectively speak to issues of sport, language, and culture and (b) provide a template for the future development of transdisciplinary theory and research. The special issue provides a unique opportunity to appropriately illustrate how diversity in intellectual perspective and disciplinary approach is necessary for productively creating a unified domain of scholarly interest.
