Abstract:
			
'Not all applied linguists agree they are social scientists, but this
detailed and wide-ranging book should persuade them of the risks of
ignoring the sociological tradition, for it is full of detailed
examples of theory and practice, carefully examined from both
linguistic and sociological perspectives.' Professor Christopher
Brumfit, University of Southampton

Applied Linguistics as Social Science surveys the increasing dialogue
between linguistics and social theory. The book shows how social
theory, applied linguistics and sociolinguistics share a set of common
concerns, and how an analysis of these to produce a social scientific
account of applied linguistics helps to explain the interaction
between social structures, human agents and language.

The authors present a detailed discussion of questions and topics
which are of concern to applied linguists, without losing sight of
what is distinctive about language and not reducible to any other
dimension of the social world. In so doing, the book presents the
first persuasive argument for regarding the discipline of applied
linguistics as a social science.
