Applied Linguistics Review. 2010 1 Li Wei
The Applied Linguistics Review (ALR) is a peer reviewed annual publication. It serves as a testing ground for the articulation of original ideas and approaches in the study of real-world issues in which language plays a crucial role, by bringing together new empirical and theoretical research and critical reflections of current debates. The issues dealt with in ALR range from aspects of the linguistic and communicative competence of the individual such as bilingualism and multilingualism, first or second language acquisition, literacy, language disorders, to language and communication related problems in and between societies such as linguistic discrimination, language conflict, communication in the workplace, language policy and language planning, and language ideology. The Applied Linguistics Review features contributions from scholars world-wide.
