Summary

Routledge Applied Linguistics is a series of comprehensive textbooks, providing students and researchers with the support they need for advanced study in the core areas of English Language and Applied Linguistics.

Each book in the series guides readers through three main sections, enabling them to explore and develop major themes within the discipline.

  • Section A, Introduction, establishes the key terms and concepts and extends readers’ techniques of analysis through practical application.
  • Section B, Extension, brings together influential articles, sets them in context, and discusses their contribution to the field.
  • Section C, Exploration, builds on knowledge gained in the first two sections, setting thoughtful tasks around further illustrative material. This enables readers to engage more actively with the subject matter and encourages them to develop their own research responses.

Throughout the book, topics are revisited, extended, interwoven and deconstructed, with the reader’s understanding strengthened by tasks and follow-up questions.

Language and Interaction:

  • introduces key concepts in language and social interaction
  • describes how individuals develop skills in social interaction and shows how people create identities through their use of language
  • brings together essential readings in anthropology, discourse studies and sociology

Written by an experienced teacher and researcher in the field, Language and Interaction is an essential resource for students and researchers of applied linguistics and communication studies.
