Book Information


Title: The Routledge Handbook of Applied Linguistics
Edited By: James Simpson
Series Title: Routledge Handbooks in Applied Linguistics

The Routledge Handbook of Applied Linguistics serves as an introduction and
reference point to key areas in the field of applied linguistics.

The five sections of the volume encompass a wide range of topics from a
variety of perspectives:

*applied linguistics in action
*language learning, language education
*language, culture and identity
*perspectives on language in use
*descriptions of language for applied linguistics.

The forty-seven chapters connect knowledge about language to decision-
making in the real world. The volume as a whole highlights the role of applied
linguistics, which is to make insights drawn from language study relevant to
such decision-making.

The chapters are written by specialists from around the world. Each one
provides an overview of the history of the topic, the main current issues and
possible future trajectory. Where appropriate, authors discuss the impact and
use of new technology in the area. Suggestions for further reading are
provided with every chapter. The Routledge Handbook of Applied Linguistics
is an essential purchase for postgraduate students of applied linguistics.
