Abstract:

The rapid worldwide growth in migration, asylum seekers and refugees and
reactions to this, the expansion of media and technology, political and
economic changes at international and local levels are both challenges and
opportunities for research in applied linguistics.

This book presents 23 articles by key researchers exploring the ways in
which applied linguistics can play a role making a difference in people's
lives. It is a timely publication when access to powerful discourses is
increasingly an issue for many of the world's populations. The book
showcases the contribution of applied linguists working in such areas as
language teaching and learning, policy development, discourse analysis,
language assessment, language development and bilingualism in the UK, Asia
and Australasia.

The book is aimed at teachers, teacher educators, undergraduate and
postgraduate students who are working in the areas of the applied
linguistics and language education, but also to anyone with an interest in
language and the impact that it has on our lives.

"The whole idea is that so many of us live our lives applying linguistics
and yet we don't even think about it". - Shirley Brice Heath, in Heath and
Kramsch (2004, 82): Individuals, Institutions and the Uses of Literacy:
Shirley Brice Heath and Claire Kramsch in Conversation. Journal of Applied
Linguistics, 1(1):75-94.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
