The Routledge Handbook of Applied Linguistics serves as an introduction and reference point to key areas in the field of applied linguistics.
The five sections of the volume encompass a wide range of topics from a variety of perspectives:
applied linguistics in action
language learning, language education
language, culture and identity
perspectives on language in use
descriptions of language for applied linguistics.
The forty-seven chapters connect knowledge about language to decision-making in the real world. The volume as a whole highlights the role of applied linguistics, which is to make insights drawn from language study relevant to such decision-making.
