The Oxford handbook of applied linguistics by Robert B Kaplan( Book )

36 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""It must be said that [The Oxford Handbook of Applied Linguistics] is an impressive publishing achievement. The task of analyzing the field, deckling on disciplines to be covered, finding willing contributors of sufficient status from all over the world, and then combining the articles from these contributors into an edited whole must have been a massive one, and it has been largely successful. Oxford University Press, Robert Kaplan, and the editorial board are to be congratulated on their initiative and the result it has produced."--Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language (Vol.6 No. 3. December 2002)" ""This is an impressive and ambitious enterprise ... Although this book can be used for reference, its real strength lies in its scope and reflective quality. This book has many roles: as a map of the territory, to inform on where things are and their intellectual topography: a guide: 39 individual mines: but above all as an extended, reflective, collective synthesis-essay on what we are and what we do. Professionals will be able to determine what are the current directions in other parts of AL. Students, teachers, and researchers in AL and beyond will be able to use it for survey courses, and as a springboard to deeper investigation of specific areas and topics."--AILA News" ""[A] monumental editorial enterprise ... It is to be commended and used widely and wisely."--ESL Magazine" "This second edition of the Oxford Handbook of Applied Linguistics includes five new chapters, and the remaining chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated to give a clear picture of the current state of applied linguistics."--Jacket
Theory and practice of writing : an applied linguistic perspective by William Grabe( Book )

30 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book undertakes a general framework within which to consider the complex nature of the writing task in English, both as a first, and as a second language. The volume explores varieties of writing, different purposes for learning to write extended text, and cross-cultural variation among second-language writers." "The volume overviews textlinguistic research, explores process approaches to writing, discusses writing for professional purposes, and contrastive rhetoric. It proposes a model for text construction as well as a framework for a more general theory of writing. Later chapters, organised around seventy-five themes for writing instruction are devoted to the teaching of writing at the beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. Writing assessment and other means for responding to writing are also discussed." "William Grabe and Robert Kaplan summarise various theoretical strands that have been recently explored by applied linguists and other writing researchers, and draw these strands together into a coherent overview of the nature of written text. Finally they suggest methods for the teaching of writing consistent with the nature, processes and social context of writing."--Jacket
