Contemporary Applied Linguistics presents a comprehensive survey of the ways in which linguistics is being used by researchers in a wide-range of interdisciplinary areas. Written by internationally renowned linguists, the volumes aim to provide a snapshot of the field of applied linguistics. Chapters in this second volume present an overview of new (and interdisciplinary) applications of linguistics to such diverse fields as economics, law, religion, tourism, media studies and health care. Both volumes represent the best of current practice in applied linguistics, and will be invaluable to students and researchers looking for an overview of the field.
