The Routledge Handbook of Applied Linguistics
The Routledge Handbook of Applied Linguistics serves as an introduction and reference point to key areas in the field of applied linguistics.
The five sections of the volume encompass a wide range of topics from a variety of perspectives:
applied linguistics in action
language learning, language education
language, culture and identity
perspectives on language in use
descriptions of language for applied linguistics.
The forty-seven chapters connect knowledge about language to decision-making in the real world. The volume as a whole highlights the role of applied linguistics, which is to make insights drawn from language study relevant to such decision-making.
The chapters are written by specialists from around the world. Each one provides an overview of the history of the topic, the main current issues and possible future trajectory. Where appropriate, authors discuss the impact and use of new technology in the area. Suggestions for further reading are provided with every chapter. The Routledge Handbook of Applied Linguistics is an essential purchase for postgraduate students of applied linguistics.
Editorial board: Ronald Carter, Guy Cook, Diane Larsen-Freeman and Amy Tsui.
