Title: Applied Cultural Linguistics
Subtitle: Implications for second language learning and intercultural communication
Edited By: Farzad Sharifian
Gary B. Palmer
Series Title: Converging Evidence in Language and Communication Research 7
Description:

Research in the relatively new field of cultural linguistics has
implications for second language learning and intercultural communication.
This volume is the first of its kind to bring together studies that examine
the implications for applied programs of research in these domains.
Collectively, the contributions explore the interrelationship between
language, culture, and conceptualisations. Each study focuses on a
different language-and-culture. The languages-cultures studied include
Japanese, Chinese, Arabic, Persian, English, Aboriginal English and African
English. The particular conceptual bases of the contributions range from
theories of embodiment and conceptual metaphors to theories of schemas and
cultural scripts. Several authors directly address the application of their
observations to the fields of second language/dialect learning and
intercultural communication, while others first present a theoretical
analysis and then explore its practical implications. Collectively, the
contributions establish a novel direction for research in applied linguistics.
