Reflecting the growth and widening scope of Applied linguistics, this new edition thoroughly updates and expands coverage. It includes 27 new chapters, now consists of two complementary volumes, and covers a wide range of topics from a variety of perspectives, Volume 1 is organised into two sections: Language Learning and Education and Key Areas and Approaches in Applied Linguistics and Volume 2 also two sections: Applied Linguistics in Society and Broadening Horizons.
Each volume includes thirty chapters written by specialists from around the world. Each chapter provides an overview of the history of the topic, the main current issues, recommendations for practice and possible future trajectory. Where appropriate, authors discuss the impact and use of new research methods in the area. Suggestions for further reading and cross-references are provided with every chapter.
