Description

The Oxford Handbook of Applied Linguistics contains 39 original chapters on a broad range of topics in applied linguistics by a diverse group of contributors. Its goal is to provide a comprehensive survey of the current state of the field, the many connections among its various sub-disciplines, and the likely directions of its future development. The Oxford Handbook of Applied Linguistics addresses a broad audience: applied linguists; educators and other scholars working in language acquisition, language learning, language planning, teaching, and testing; and linguists concerned with applications of their work. Systematically encompassing the major areas of applied linguistics-and drawing from a wide range of disciplines such as education, language policy, bi- and multi-lingualism, literacy, language and gender, neurobiology of language, psycholinguistics/cognition, language and computers, discourse analysis, language and concordances, ecology of language, pragmatics, translation, psycholinguistics and cognition, and many other fields, the editors and contributors to The Oxford Handbook of Applied Linguistics provide a panoramic and comprehensive look at this complex and vigorous field. This second edition includes five new chapters, and the remaining chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated to give a clear picture of the current state of applied linguistics.show more

Review quote

It must be said that it is an impressive publishing achievement. The task of analyzing the field, deciding on disciplines to be covered, finding willing contributors of sufficient status from all over the world and then combining the articles from these contributors into an edited whole must have been a massive one, and it has been largely successful. Oxford University Press, Robert Kaplan and the editorial board are to be congratulated on their initiative and the result it has produced. * Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language (Vol.6 No. 3, December 2002) *show more
