Inside Applied Linguistics (54)
Studies in Honour of H. G. Widdowson
Guy Cook and Barbara Seidlhofer
This book provides an overview of the diverse issues in applied linguistics today. Leading specialists consider the relation of their own areas of inquiry both to professional practice and to the discipline as a whole.
This book outlines pragmatics, the study of how people make sense of each other linguistically. Basic concepts such as the cooperative principle, deixis, and speech acts are explained and illustrated, providing readers with an ideal foundation for further study.
An Approach to Poetry
H. G. Widdowson
This book argues that a particular perspective on poetry leads to a recognition of its essential role in education, and provides a set of principles for an approach to teaching poetry that integrates the study of language and literature.
This book leads the reader through the main areas of phonetics, including how speech sounds are made and how phoneticians classify them. Topics include the International Phonetic Alphabet, intonation, and accent variation.
The core foundations of applied linguistics have long been located in exploring language as it is used in the world and in finding solutions to language-based problems. Modern applied linguistics is interdisciplinary and wide-ranging, being informed by research spanning psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, education, corpus linguistics, cognitive linguistics, and other areas of the cognitive, learning, and information sciences.
The goal of the OUP Applied Linguistics Series is to influence the quality of language education through publishing and disseminating relevant scholarship and research.

This book offers research evidence with a startling conclusion: language processing skills that have been assumed to be universal human traits appear instead to be a product of learners' experience with alphabetic print literacy.
This book discusses the need for foreign language programs to teach literacy. It suggests approaches to curriculum development using a wide range of modern media texts such as newspapers, music videos, and film as a basis for cultural analysis.
