This book explores implications for applied linguistics of recent
developments in technologies used in second language teaching and
assessment, language analysis, and language use. Focusing primarily on
English language learning, the book identifies significant areas of
interplay between technology and applied linguistics, and it explores
current perspectives on perennial questions such as how theory and
research on second language acquisition can help to inform
technology-based language learning practices, how the multifaceted
learning accomplished through technology can be evaluated, and how
theoretical perspectives can offer insight on data obtained from
research on interaction with and through technology. The book
illustrates how the interplay between technology and applied
linguistics can amplify and expand applied linguists' understanding of
fundamental issues in the field. Through discussion of
computer-assisted approaches for investigating second language
learning tasks and assessment, it illustrates how technology can be
used as a tool for applied linguistics research.
