Abstract:

Applied Linguistics Methods: A Reader presents the student with threecontemporary approaches for investigating text, practices and contexts inwhich language-related problems are implicated. Divided into three parts,the reader focuses in turn on the different approaches, showing how each isrelevant to addressing real world problems, including those relating tocontemporary educational practices.

Part One introduces the reader to Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) asan approach particularly well suited to the description of language andlanguage-related problems in social contexts.

Part Two examines Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) as a means ofuncovering the relationships between language use, power and ideology.

Part Three presents Ethnography (and linguistic ethnography) as amethodology for observing the use and significance of language in real-lifeevents as they unfold.

The editors' general introduction introduces the student to the tools ofSFL, CDA and ethnography and explains how the three approaches each offerdistinct as well as, in some cases, complementary perspectives on languagein use. Each part is made up of one classic theoretical reading, onecutting-edge theoretical reading, and three problem-oriented readings andincludes an introduction, which provides synopses of the individualreadings making the book highly usable on courses.

Applied Linguistics Methods: A Reader is key reading for advanced levelundergraduates and postgraduates on Applied Linguistics, English Language,and TESOL/TEFL courses.
