Given the interdisciplinary character of applied linguistics, the series includes cognitive, psycholinguistic, sociolinguistic and educational perspectives.

The following topicsare included in the series:

  • Second language acquisition and the acquisition of additional languages
  • Bilingual and multilingual education
  • Language planning and language policy
  • Literacy skills
  • Second/foreign language pedagogy
  • Translation and interpretation
  • Language for specific purposes
  • Discourse analysis
  • Language testing and assessment
  • Child language
  • Language and gender
  • Pragmatics and rhetorics
  • Corpus analysis
  • Critical pedagogies
  • Research methodology in applied linguistics
  • Language and technology

Long description:

This book presents an in-depth interdisciplinary understanding of key cognitive factors as they relate to second and foreign language learning, teaching, and testing. In particular, critical reviews of these cognitive aptitudes draw on multiple perspectives from both applied linguistics and cognitive science.
