Inside Applied Linguistics (60)
A study of the role of language input, interaction, and corrective feedback in second-language learning and Second Language Acquisition research.
Leading practitioners in the field of SLA explain their sociocognitive perspectives on language learning.
Rob Batstone (Editor)
Leading theorists put the case for using sociocognition to examine language learning
Translation is one of the most important cross-linguistic and cross-cultural practices. This short introduction focuses on what you need to know about it: the different perspectives on translation and key issues such as equivalence in translation, translation evaluation, and the role of translation in language teaching, globalization, and intercultural communication.
Examines how formulaic language ("lexical chunks") is used in a variety of real-life situations.
Presents a framework for examining the existence and function of formulaic language and tests it extensively against language data within a wide variety of language samples. Formulaic language is a fast-growing area of applied linguistic research, and the author is a key figure in this field.
This book explores the notion that the reason some learners of second languages excel and others struggle lies in what the learners themselves do-the strategies they bring to language learning and to language use.
A collection of empirical studies

This edited collection of empirical studies examines the link between interaction and second language learning.
