Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics consists of introductory leveltextbooks covering the core topics in Applied Linguistics, designed for thoseentering postgraduate studies and language professionals returning toacademic study. The books take an innovative "practice to theory" approach,with a 'back to front' structure which takes the reader from real life problemsand issues in the field, then enters into a discussion of intervention and howto engage with these concerns. The final section concludes by tying thepractical issues to theoretical foundations. Additional features include taskswith commentaries, a glossary of key terms, and an annotated further readingsection.

Corpus linguistics is a key area of applied linguistics and one of the mostrapidly developing. Winnie Cheng's practical approach guides readers inacquiring the relevant knowledge and theories to enable the analysis,explanation and interpretation of language using corpus methods.
