It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Research in Applied Linguistics
Subtitle: Becoming a Discerning Consumer
Written By: Fred L. Perry

This text provides a solid introduction to the foundations of research
methods, with the goal of enabling students and professionals in the field
of applied linguistics to become not just casual consumers of research who
passively read bits and pieces of a research article, but discerning
consumers able to effectively use published research for practical purposes
in educational settings. All issues important for understanding and using
published research for these purposes are covered. Key principles are
illustrated with research studies published in refereed journals across a
wide spectrum of applied linguistics. Exercises distributed throughout the
text encourage readers to engage interactively with what they are reading
at the point when the information is fresh in their minds.

"Research in Applied Linguistics: Becoming a Discerning Consumer" is
designed as a text for courses in M.A.-TESOL/TEFL and applied linguistics
