Written in a lucid and user-friendly language, this twelve-chapter volume is the right choice for any researcher interested in doing research in applied linguistics. The penning of the book shows that applied linguistics has established itself as a separate field, weaning itself off from general education or psychology. The lynchpin of the book is that it is embellished with case studies that illustrate how the concepts have actually been put into practice.
