Introducing Applied Linguistics provides in-depth coverage of key areas in
the subject, as well as introducing the essential study skills needed for
academic success in the field.
Introducing Applied Linguistics:
* is organised into two Sections: the first introducing Key Concepts in
Applied Linguistics; and the second devoted to the Study Skills students
need to succeed.
* features specially commissioned chapters from key authorities who address
core areas of Applied Linguistics, including both traditional and more
cutting edge topics, such as: grammar, vocabulary, language in the media,
forensic linguistics, and much more.
* contains a study skills section offering guidance on a range of skills,
such as: how to structure and organise an essay, the conventions of
referencing, how to design research projects, plus many more.
* is supported by a lively Companion Website, which includes interactive
exercises, information about the contributors and why they’ve written the
book, and annotated weblinks to help facilitate further independent learning.
Ideal for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students of Applied
Linguistics and TEFL/TESOL, Introducing Applied Linguistics not only
presents selected key concepts in depth, but also initiates the student
into the discourse of Applied Linguistics.
