About the Series

Frontiers in Applied Linguistics

Frontiers in Applied Linguistics focuses on the development of applied linguistics in the Chinese speaking world. Although extensive researches have been carried out in the field of applied linguistics, most studies have primarily concentrated on Indo-European speakers. This series is expected to fill the void. Each volume in the series will address different issues, and strike a balance between methodological and theoretical discussion on empirical researches into applied linguistics in the Chinese context.
