The Handbook of Applied Linguistics is a collection of over 30 newly
commissioned articles that provide a comprehensive and up-to-date
picture of the field of Applied Linguistics. The handbook is divided
in parts that demonstrate the two main approaches to the field:
applications of linguistics (sometimes called linguistics applied or
LA) to real world language data with the purpose of further
understanding language and evaluating linguistic theory; and the
problem-based approach (known as applied linguistics or AL) that
investigates real world language with the purpose of understanding
language use and ameliorating social problems.

The handbook presents applied linguistics as an independent and
coherent discipline that seeks to unify practical experience and
theoretical understanding of language development and language in use,
and is a valuable resource for students and researchers in applied
linguistics, language teaching and second language acquisition.

Lingfield(s): Applied Linguistics
