Title: Questioning Linguistics
Edited By: NaomiKKnight
Description:

'Questioning Linguistics' brings together different perspectives on
language studies and applications into a single volume and allows readers
to examine how linguists of diverse traditions study and use this expert
knowledge of language. By doing so, this volume invites us to reconsider
the nature and focus of the field of study and questions a number of
current thoughts about language theory, application, and use. In effect,
the nature of linguistics, linguistic theory, and languages are called into
question, as are the methods that we as linguists may take for granted in
our developed research traditions.

Scholars and researchers from within linguistics and beyond will find this
volume both accessible and engaging, as it gathers the thoughts and
opinions of experts in the field alongside new theorists in an open forum
for discussion that diminishes the borders between these diverse threads.
