Abstract:

Applied Linguistics Methods: A Reader presents the student with three
contemporary approaches for investigating text, practices and contexts in
which language-related problems are implicated. Divided into three parts,
the reader focuses in turn on the different approaches, showing how each is
relevant to addressing real world problems, including those relating to
contemporary educational practices.

Part One introduces the reader to Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) as
an approach particularly well suited to the description of language and
language-related problems in social contexts.

Part Two examines Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) as a means of
uncovering the relationships between language use, power and ideology.

Part Three presents Ethnography (and linguistic ethnography) as a
methodology for observing the use and significance of language in real-life
events as they unfold.

The editors' general introduction introduces the student to the tools of
SFL, CDA and ethnography and explains how the three approaches each offer
distinct as well as, in some cases, complementary perspectives on language
in use. Each part is made up of one classic theoretical reading, one
cutting-edge theoretical reading, and three problem-oriented readings and
includes an introduction, which provides synopses of the individual
readings making the book highly usable on courses.

Applied Linguistics Methods: A Reader is key reading for advanced level
undergraduates and postgraduates on Applied Linguistics, English Language,
and TESOL/TEFL courses.
