Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics is a series of introductory level textbooks covering the core topics in Applied Linguistics, primarily designed for those beginning postgraduate studies, or taking an introductory MA course as well as advanced undergraduates. Titles in the series are also ideal for language professionals returning to academic study. The books take an innovative 'practice to theory' approach, with a 'back-to-front' structure. This leads the reader from real-world problems and issues, through a discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns, before finally relating these practical issues to theoretical foundations. Additional features include tasks with commentaries, a glossary of key terms, and an annotated further reading section. Exploring Intercultural Communication investigates the role of language in intercultural communication, paying particular attention to the interplay between cultural diversity and language practice. This book brings together current or emerging strands and themes in the field by examining how intercultural communication permeates our everyday life, what we can do to achieve effective and appropriate intercultural communication, and why we study language, culture and identity together. The focus is on interactions between people from various cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and regards intercultural communication as a process of negotiating meaning, cultural identities, and – above all – differences between ourselves and others. Including global examples from a range of genres, this book is an essential read for students taking language and intercultural communication modules within Applied Linguistics, TESOL, Education or Communication Studies courses.

Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics is a series of introductory level textbooks covering the core topics in Applied Linguistics, primarily designed for those beginning postgraduate studies or taking an introductory MA course, as well as advanced undergraduates. Titles in the series are also ideal for language professionals returning to academic study. The books take an innovative ‘practice to theory’ approach, with a ‘back-to-front’ structure. This leads the reader from real-world problems and issues, through a discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns, before finally relating these practical issues to theoretical foundations. Exploring Digital Communication aims to discuss real-world issues pertaining to digital communication, and to explore how linguistic research addresses these challenges. The text is divided into three sections (Problems and practices; Interventions; and Theory), each of which is further divided into two subsections which reflect linguistic issues relating to digital communication. The author seeks to demystify any perceived divide between online and offline communication, arguing that issues raised in relation to digital communication throw light on language use and practices in general, and thus linguistic interventions in this area have implications not only for users of digital communication but for linguists’ general understanding of language and society. Including relevant research examples, tasks and a glossary, this textbook is an invaluable resource for postgraduate and upper undergraduate students taking New Media or Communication Studies modules within Applied Linguistics and English Language courses.

"This Reader is a scholarly tour de force, as it offers an intelligent and comprehensive coverage of the highly multidisciplinary field of Intercultural Communication without falling into the twin traps of essentialism or relativism. No researcher in applied linguistics will want to miss Zhu Hua's brilliant concluding chapter that surveys various research designs and data collection techniques, and discusses the strengths and weaknesses of each approach. The study questions and activities featured in each chapter together with suggestions for further reading make this Reader an invaluable resource for undergraduate and graduate seminars alike." Claire Kramsch, University of California, Berkeley, USA "This volume covers all the key topics, both basic conceptual and theoretical questions and a broad range of empirical issues and perspectives related to different settings and different parts of the world. It is really global in its coverage. This book will give readers a good grasp of the field as it is being developed throughout the world." Karen Risager, Roskilde University, Denmark This reader covers the two interconnected areas of Language and Intercultural Communication, increasingly studied together. Language is key to understanding culture, and culture is an essential part of studying language. Divided into six parts, the Reader covers: Theories of language and intercultural communication; Cultural dimensions of language in use; Communication patterns across cultures; Teaching and learning cultural variations of language use; Interculturality; and Intercultural Communication in professional contexts. With 22 varied readings from eminent authorities in the field as well as cutting edge material from new researchers, the Reader explores the breadth and depth of the subject as well as providing a valuable overview for both student and scholar. Each reading has been carefully selected to both showcase the best thinking and latest research, and to reflect the international nature of the field. Each part begins with a clear and comprehensive introduction, and is enhanced by discussion questions, suggested activities and far-reaching further reading sections. There is a final section offering advice on how to perform research in this area. This is an essential text for all students and researchers in the area of language and intercultural communication.

Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics consists of introductory level textbooks covering the core topics in Applied Linguistics, designed for those entering postgraduate studies and language professionals returning to academic study. The books take an innovative "practice to theory" approach, with a ‘back to front’ structure which takes the reader from real life problems and issues in the field, then enters into a discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns. The final section concludes by tying the practical issues to theoretical foundations. Additional features include tasks with commentaries, a glossary of key terms, and an annotated further reading section. Corpus linguistics is a key area of applied linguistics and one of the most rapidly developing. Winnie Cheng’s practical approach guides readers in acquiring the relevant knowledge and theories to enable the analysis, explanation and interpretation of language using corpus methods. Throughout the book practical classroom examples, concordance based analyses and tasks such as designing and conducting mini-projects are used to connect and explain the conceptual and practical aspects of corpus linguistics. Exploring Corpus Linguistics is an essential textbook for post-graduate/graduate students new to the field and for advanced undergraduates studying English Language and Applied Linguistics.

The book is divided into eight chapters, each dealing with a specific area of professional communication, such as genres of professional communication, identities in the workplace, and key issues of gender, leadership and culture. Although the book's main approach to professional communication is an applied linguistics one, it also draws on insights from a range of other disciplines. Throughout, Stephanie Schnurr takes an interactive approach that is reflected in the numerous examples of authentic discourse data, from a variety of written and spoken contexts. Exploring Professional Communication is critical reading for postgraduate and upper undergraduate students of applied linguistics and communication studies.
