'Applied Linguistics' investigates real-world problems involving
language. As such it has the difficult task of mediating between
academic expertise and lived experience, attempting to reconcile
opposed interests and perspectives. This clearly written introduction
provides a concise but comprehensive overview of the most pressing and
controversial issues surrounding contemporary language use today,
including intercultural communication, political persuasion, new
technologies, the growth of English, language in education, and
foreign language teaching and learning.

Lingfield(s): Applied Linguistics
