Book Information

   

Title: Applied Linguistics
URL: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-140519359X.html
Series Title: Introducing Linguistics
Description:

Applied Linguistics provides a complete survey of the core areas of applied linguistics, covering its theories, methods, and key findings. The volume adopts a problem-solving approach, introducing students to key research questions raised by applied linguists, and guiding them through the various approaches to tackling these. This method enables students to identify every-day language and communication issues, and to draw on their own personal experiences when considering the application of theories and methodology to real-life scenarios.

The book offers a wide and in-depth coverage of major topics in the field of applied linguistics, including first and second language acquisition, normal and atypical language development, literacy, language assessment, language and identity, language and gender, language contact, language policy and language planning, intercultural communication, language and the professions and translation. Students will also benefit from the study aids featured throughout the book, including chapter outlines, learning objectives, key terms, research questions and answers, study questions, and key readings. Heading up a vastly-experienced and interdisciplinary team of contributors from the renowned department of applied Linguistics at Birkbeck College, University of London, editor Li Wei has created an enjoyable, informative, and balanced introduction to the multi-faceted field of applied linguistics.
