Abstract:

Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics consists of introductory level
textbooks covering the core topics in Applied Linguistics, designed for those
entering postgraduate studies and language professionals returning to
academic study. The books take an innovative "practice to theory" approach,
with a 'back to front' structure which takes the reader from real life problems
and issues in the field, then enters into a discussion of intervention and how
to engage with these concerns. The final section concludes by tying the
practical issues to theoretical foundations. Additional features include tasks
with commentaries, a glossary of key terms, and an annotated further reading
section.

Corpus linguistics is a key area of applied linguistics and one of the most
rapidly developing. Winnie Cheng's practical approach guides readers in
acquiring the relevant knowledge and theories to enable the analysis,
explanation and interpretation of language using corpus methods.

Throughout the book practical classroom examples, concordance based
analyses and tasks such as designing and conducting mini-projects are used
to connect and explain the conceptual and practical aspects of corpus
linguistics.

Exploring Corpus Linguistics is an essential textbook for post-
graduate/graduate students new to the field and for advanced undergraduates
studying English Language and Applied Linguistics.
