There are several issues in English teaching on which applied linguists take very different positions: e.g. linguistic imperialism, the validity of critical discourse analysis, the pedagogic relevance of corpus descriptions of language, the theoretical bases of second language acquisitionresearch, the nature of applied linguistics itself. This book presents exchanges between scholars arguing different positions, and directs attention to the key points at issue.
Barbara Seidlhofer has taught German in the UK and currently works as a researcher and Professor in Linguistics and Methodology in the English Department at Vienna University.
