Routledge Applied Linguistics is a series of comprehensive resource books,
providing students and researchers with the support they need for advanced
study in the core areas of English language and Applied Linguistics.
Each book in the series guides readers through three main sections,
enabling them to explore and develop major themes within the discipline.
Section A, Introduction, establishes the key terms and concepts and extends
readers' techniques of analysis through practical application. Section B,
Extension, brings together influential articles, sets them in context, and
discusses their contribution to the field. Section C, Exploration, builds
on knowledge gained in the first two sections, setting thoughtful tasks
around further illustrative material. This enables readers to engage more
actively with the subject matter and encourages them to develop their own
research responses. Throughout the book, topics are revisited, extended,
interwoven and deconstructed, with the reader's understanding strengthened
by tasks and follow-up questions.
