'Questioning Linguistics' brings together different perspectives onlanguage studies and applications into a single volume and allows readersto examine how linguists of diverse traditions study and use this expertknowledge of language. By doing so, this volume invites us to reconsiderthe nature and focus of the field of study and questions a number ofcurrent thoughts about language theory, application, and use. In effect,the nature of linguistics, linguistic theory, and languages are called intoquestion, as are the methods that we as linguists may take for granted inour developed research traditions.

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

Linguistic Field(s): Discipline of Linguistics
