This Applied Linguistics book is designed to enable students to have a more through and comprehensive knowledge the materials of Applied Linguistics (AL). We hope that students have a comprehensive knowledge about the field of Applied Linguistics.

We hope students to learn and apply the materials.At its inception in the late 1950’s, AL was principally concerned with language teaching, especially second / foreign language teaching, to the point that the two terms basically became synonymous (Strevens 1992: 11). Over time, the field grew and expanded to include other sub-fields unrelated to second / foreign language teaching, such as language policy and planning, forensic linguistics, clinical linguistic, critical discourse analysis, translation and interpretation, and lexicography. However, this close association with second / foreign language teaching still remains, and it is thus not surprising that some An Introduction to Applied Linguistics: Approaches and Methods in Language Teaching (1981)). Other introductory books present a somewhat larger scope to the field, yet still dedicate a large amount of space to second / foreign language teaching (W. Grabe and R. Kaplan’s Introduction to Applied Linguistics (1992)).
AL provides the theoretical and descriptive foundations for the investigation and solution of language-related problems, especially those of language education (first-language, secondlanguage and foreign-language teaching and learning), but also problems of translation and interpretation, lexicography, forensic linguistics and (perhaps) clinical linguistics. As far as the Research Assessment Exercise is concerned, research in AL is assessed by the Linguistics panel, and covers areas of basic research in the general territory of Linguistics – parts of discourse analysis, sociolinguistics, language acquisition – as well as language-related research in specialized areas such as pedagogy and the theories of translation and lexicography.
