Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: The Routledge Applied Linguistics Reader
Edited By: Li Wei
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415566209/
Description:

"The Routledge Applied Linguistics Reader" is an essential collection of
readings for students of Applied Linguistics. Divided into five sections:
Language Teaching and Learning, Second Language Acquisition, Applied
Linguistics, Identity and Power and Language Use in Professional Contexts,
the Reader takes a broad interpretation of the subject from its traditional
foundations in language teaching and learning to cover the newer
subdisciplines from corpus linguistics to forensic linguistics.

Using a multidisciplinary approach, the Reader focuses on the topics and
issues to which Applied Linguistics research has made a significant
contribution, in particular:

*our understanding of key concepts and notions in the study of real-world
problems in which language and communication play a central role
*the theoretical debates of broader social science issues that impact on
language teaching, learning and use
*the main methodological advances.

Featuring twenty-seven carefully selected readings, the Reader focuses on
both the major contributions of Applied Linguistics, and the conceptual and
theoretical issues of the subject in a variety of contexts and methods. The
selection comprises seminal articles from leading researchers, as well as
fresh perspectives from new voices in the subject. These Readings are
amplified by a general introduction as well as detailed, critical summaries
of each section, discussion questions and recommended further reading for
each article.
