Description:

"Doing Applied Linguistics" provides a concise, lively and accessible
introduction to the field of applied linguistics for readers who have little or no
prior knowledge of the subject. The book explores the basics of the field then
goes on to examine in more depth what applied linguists actually do, and the
types of research methods that are most frequently used in the field. By
reading this book students will find the answers to four sets of basic
questions:


-What is applied linguistics, and what do applied linguists do?
-Why do it? What is the point of applied linguistics?
-How and why might I get involved in applied linguistics?
-How to do it? What kinds of activities are involved in doing applied linguistic
research?

Written by teachers and researchers in applied linguistics "Doing Applied
Linguistics" is essential reading for all students with interests in this area.
