📙 An introduction to applied linguistics: from practice to theory, 2nd Edition by Alan Davies — download pdf


Language and language problems affect all of us and are an integral part of our social experience. In An Introduction to Applied Linguistics, Professor Davies takes this simple fact as his starting point and sets out to show that applied linguistics is better understood by doing it than studying or reading about it. Beginning with the history and definitions of applied linguistics, he then looks at the full spectrum of 'institutional' and 'non-institutional' uses of language, spanning not only language learning and teaching but also language as a socio-psychological phenomenon. Whilst setting this practical outlook against the historical background of changing public needs and competing ideologies, Davies shows that a theory can be derived. The book has been updated throughout. The amendments include a re-examination of the Linguistics Applied-Applied Linguistics opposition, a survey of Applied Linguistics curricula, a consideration of whether there is any difference between the terms Educational Linguistics and Applied Linguistics, further discussion of the role of correctness and of ethics and a new study of the challenges to Applied Linguistics of socio-cultural theory, the theorising of World Englishes and the concept of the native speaker. There is a new final chapter which surveys the whole volume and makes connections with the other volumes in the Series. The book provides an excellent introduction to the problems and issues that arise in the practice of applied linguistics. Reviewers of the First Edition have described it as 'required reading for all who consider themselves applied linguists', 'an interesting and provocative book', 'obligatory reading for students and researchers in applied linguistics' and 'an admirable description of the nature of applied linguistics, the mentality of its practitioners and the problems that they encounter'. It will repay study by all those working professionally with language and those generally interested in the relationship between linguistics and applied linguistics. Readily accessible to graduate students, it will be of considerable benefit to those undergraduate students who are prepared to persevere.Key Features: Introductory text and the foundation volume for the series. Emphasis on the importance of experience. Examples of applied linguistics in language teaching and in other settings.Exercises and demonstrated examples included.
