Title: Japanese Applied Linguistics
Subtitle: Discourse and Social Perspectives
Written By: AmySnyderOhta
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com
Description:

This book showcases recent developments in the field of Japanese Applied
Linguistics. It covers a wide range of current issues and influential
theoretical and methodological frameworks, many of which are of concern not
only for Japanese specialists but also applied linguists in general. At the
same time, the book provides empirical studies that exemplify how these
issues and frameworks manifest themselves in contexts that surround first
and second language speakers of Japanese.

The book is divided into four sections. The first examines language in
action, providing a close analysis of language as it is used in
interactions between speakers. The second section looks at sociological
issues surrounding Japanese speakers, considering factors such as gender,
age, or regional and professional background. Section three explores how
globalization has affected Japanese language use and acquisition. The final
section reflects on classroom teaching of Japanese language and culture.

This comprehensive, in-depth study will be useful for researchers and
graduate students in both applied linguistics and Japanese linguistics.
