Routledge Applied Linguistics is a series of comprehensive resource books,
providing students and researchers with the support they need for advanced
study in the core areas of English language and Applied Linguistics. Each
book in the series guides readers through three main sections, enabling
them to explore and develop major themes within the discipline.
Section A, Introduction, establishes the key terms and concepts and extends
readers' techniques of analysis through practical application.
Section B, Extension, brings together influential articles, sets them in
context, and discusses their contribution to the field.
Section C, Exploration, builds on knowledge gained in the first two
sections, setting thoughtful tasks around further illustrative material.
This enables readers to engage more actively with the subject matter and
encourages them to develop their own research responses. Throughout the
book, topics are revisited, extended, interwoven and deconstructed, with
the reader's understanding strengthened by tasks and follow-up questions.
English for Academic Purposes introduces the major theories, approaches and
controversies in the field gathers together influential readings from key
names in the discipline, including: John Swales, Alistair Pennycook, Greg
Myers, Brian Street and Ann Johns provides numerous exercises as
practical study tools that encourage in students a critical approach to the
subject. Written by an experienced teacher and researcher in the field,
English for Academic Purposes is an essential resource for students and
researchers of Applied Linguistics.
