Series Title: Contemporary Studies in Linguistics
Description:

"These volumes take their mission seriously: to build the future of applied
linguistics, grounded in language but with a broad concern for real-world
issues. The volumes make for rewarding reading and demonstrate the
continuing and renewed relevance of applied linguistics."
- Professor Diane Larsen-Freeman, English Language Institute, University of
a Michigan, USA

Contemporary Applied Linguistics presents a comprehensive survey of the
ways in which linguistics is being used by researchers in a wide-range of
interdisciplinary areas. Written by internationally renowned scholars, the
volumes consist of twenty-four introductory chapters providing a snapshot
of cutting edge research in applied linguistics, highlighting the advances
in knowledge and methodology and setting the agenda for the field for the
next few decades. The contributors in the first volume present current
research in the core areas of applied linguistics, including
multilingualism, language education, teacher-learner relationships, and
assessment. Chapters in volume two present an overview of new and
interdisciplinary applications of linguistics to such diverse fields as
economics, law, religion, tourism, media and health care.

The book represents the best of current practice in applied linguistics,
and will be invaluable to students and researchers looking for an overview
of the field.
