Description - A Glossary of Applied Linguistics by Alan Davies

This alphabetic guide provides definitions and discussion of key terms used in applied linguistics. Applied linguistics is understood to deal with language in use, particularly where institutions and interventions are involved. Written by a well-known applied linguist, this glossary offers full coverage of terms used in the field. The selection of items for the glossary offers a view of applied linguistics as an activity in its own right and therefore helps define it.
