"Mapping Applied Linguistics is far and away the best introduction to
applied linguistics we have to date. But it is more than that. It is a
major contribution to the very definition and foundations of the field. It
will be viewed as a seminal book."

-- James Paul Gee, Arizona State University

"The authors of Mapping Applied Linguistics have included broad
sociocultural and critical perspectives on the key issues and methodologies
in applied linguistics. It is written in language that is accessible to the
general reader as well as advanced undergraduate or postgraduate students.
It will provide a much-needed comprehensive introduction to the field."

-- Angel Lin, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

"This book covers an impressively wide range of topics that are of interest
to students of applied linguistics. It offers a detailed discussion of the
fundamentals of a number of sub-disciplines with the help of a variety of
fascinating examples and case studies, all presented in a lively and
accessible style."

-- Dr Geri Popova, Lecturer in Linguistics, Goldsmiths University of London, UK

"Mapping Applied Linguistics is a comprehensive introduction and guide to
many of the areas which comprise Applied Linguistics. The authors draw upon
their own and collective considerable experience to provide a fresh and
innovative approach to developing understanding of the concepts included in
the book, in an accessible and interesting way. Each chapter contains
thought provoking and challenging activities to further stimulate readers
and learners.

-- Dr Urszula Clark, Aston University, UK

"This is a very well presented textbook for MA level courses in applied
linguistics, language education and modern languages. There is a
fair-minded authorial voice running through the fourteen chapters. Readers
will find an intellectually rigorous treatment of complex topics and themes
such as 'Ten ways we're led astray in language and applied linguistics'.
Students and faculty alike would find the discussion well informed and
tuned to contemporary sensibilities. This textbook is a lot more than a
carefully assembled survey of major developments and issues in applied
linguistics; it helps us see the relevance of the study of language in our
everyday experience."

-- Professor Constant Leung, Department of Education and Professional
Studies, King's College London, UK

"Mapping Applied Linguistics: A Guide for Students and Practitioners"
provides an innovative and wide-ranging introduction to the full scope of
applied linguistics.

Incorporating both socio-cultural and cognitive perspectives, the book maps
the diverse and constantly expanding range of theories, methods and issues
faced by students and practitioners alike. Practically oriented and ideally
suited to students new to the subject area, the book provides in-depth
coverage of:

* language teaching and education, literacy and language disorders

* language variation and world Englishes

* language policy and planning

* lexicography and forensic linguistics

* multilingualism and translation.

Including real data and international examples, the book features further
reading and exercises in each chapter, fieldwork suggestions and a full
glossary of key terms. An interactive Companion Website
(http://cw.routledge.com/textbooks/hall/) also provides a wealth of
additional resources.

This book will be essential reading for students studying applied
linguistics, TESOL, general linguistics, and education at the advanced
undergraduate or master's degree level. It is also the ideal gateway for
practitioners to better understand the wider scope of their work.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
                            Forensic Linguistics
