Abstract

A book about applied linguistics is inevitably a book about language, its users and uses. Because the number of language users includes all 6.8 billion of us and language uses encompass almost all our myriad activities, from the most banal to the truly momentous, the subject we’re covering in this and the following thirteen chapters is remarkably wide-ranging. It’s a big topic to fit between the covers of a book made of paper and enclosed between covers of card, so it’s inevitably going to spill over onto the companion website, get expanded in the recommended readings, well up and multiply in classroom discussion or discussion boards, and it won’t be contained.
