Available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. 8 A social realist approach to research in applied linguistics Introduction In previous chapters , we have outlined the contribution of a social scientific approach to a range of areas of the applied linguistic enterprise . -- Genre theory in the past few years has contributed immensely to our understanding of the way discourse is used in academic, professional and institutional contexts. However, its development has been constrained by the nature and design of its applications, which have invariably focused on language teaching and learning, or communication training and consultation. This has led to the use of simplified and idealised genres. In contrast to this, the real world of discourse is complex, dynamic and unpredictable. This tension between the real world of written discourse and its representation in applied genre-based literature is the main theme of this book.

Applied Linguistics as Social Science surveys the increasing dialogue between linguistics and social theory. The book shows how social theory, applied linguistics and sociolinguistics share a set of common concerns, and how an analysis of these to produce a social scientific account of applied linguistics helps to explain the interaction between social structures, human agents and language. Foreword • Introduction • Making connections: some key issues in social theory and applied linguistics • Sociology and ideas about language • Language as a cultural emergent property • Researching language learning: theories, evidence, claims • Social categories and theoretical descriptions • Social domain theory: interpreting intercultural communication • Language in the world: properties and powers • A social realist approach to research in applied linguistics

Complexity, Emergence, and Causality in Applied Linguistics
Language: en
Pages: 452
Authors: Jérémie Bouchard
Categories: Language Arts & Disciplines
Type: BOOK - Published: 2021-11-23 - Publisher: Springer Nature

This book suggests that applied linguistics research is inherently concerned with complexity, emergence and causality, and because of this it also requires a robust social ontology. The book identifies and unpacks a range of conceptual issues in applied linguistics from a social realist perspective, and provides a critique of successionism and interpretivism as two dominant and enduring empiricist tendencies in the field. From this critique, it considers the emergence of complex dynamic system theory as viable yet not entirely unproblematic conceptual sophistication of current applied linguistics research. Although the growing popularity of complex dynamic system theory is undeniable and understandable, this book argues that its integration within a social realist ontology is necessary for further developments in the field. The book will be of interest to applied linguists and social scientists interested in language-related issues including language learning and teaching, language change, language policy and planning, bilingualism/multilingualism, and language and identity.
Reflections on Qualitative Research in Language and Literacy Education

Categories: Education
Type: BOOK - Published: 2017-01-11 - Publisher: Springer

This book discusses aspects of the theory and practice of qualitative research in the specific context of language and literacy education. It addresses epistemological perspectives, methodological problems, and practical considerations related to research involvements in areas of language education and literacy studies rather than generic issues of other fields of social sciences. The volume starts with Theoretical Considerations in the first part and raises some epistemological and theoretical concerns that are rarely debated in the specific context of research on language and literacy teaching. The second part, Methodological Approaches explores issues of the design and implementation of language and literacy education research within the framework of some of the major established qualitative research traditions. Finally, the part on Research in Action discusses practical aspects of a few actual instances of qualitative research on language and literacy education in different contexts.
Applied Linguistics and Primary School Teaching

Type: BOOK - Published: 2011-04-07 - Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Modern primary teachers must adapt literacy programmes and ensure efficient learning for all. They must also support children with language and literacy difficulties, children learning English as an additional language and possibly teach a modern foreign language. To do this effectively, they need to understand the applied linguistics research that underpins so many different areas of the language and literacy curriculum. This book illustrates the impact of applied linguistics on curriculum frameworks and pedagogy. It captures the range of applied linguistics knowledge that teachers need, and illustrates how this is framed and is used by policy makers, researchers, teacher educators and the other professions who work with teachers in schools. It considers how to effect professional development that works. It is essential reading for primary teachers but also for speech and language therapists, educational psychologists, learning support teachers and all those doing language or literacy research in the primary classroom.
Introduction to Applied Linguistics

Pages: 224
Authors: Alan Davies
Categories: Language Arts & Disciplines
Type: BOOK - Published: 2007-07-12 - Publisher: Edinburgh University Press

This second edition of the foundational textbook An Introduction to Applied Linguistics provides a state-of-the-art account of contemporary applied linguistics. The kinds of language problems of interest to applied linguists are discussed and a distinction drawn between the different research approach taken by theoretical linguists and by applied linguists to what seem to be the same problems. Professor Davies describes a variety of projects which illustrate the interests of the field and highlight the marriage it offers between practical experience and theoretical understanding. The increasing emphasis of applied linguistics on ethicality is linked to the growth of professionalism and to the concern for accountability, manifested in the widening emphasis on critical stances. This, Davies argues, is at its most acute in the tension between giving advice as the outcome of research and taking political action in order to change a situation which, it is claimed, needs ameliorisation. This dilemma is not confined to applied linguistics and may now be endemic in the applied disciplines.

This book provides practical guidance on research methods and designs that can be applied to Complex Dynamic Systems Theory (CDST) research. It discusses the contribution of CDST to the field of applied linguistics, examines what this perspective entails for research and introduces practical methods and templates, both qualitative and quantitative, for how applied linguistics researchers can design and conduct research using the CDST framework. Introduced in the book are methods ranging from those in widespread use in social complexity, to more familiar methods in use throughout applied linguistics. All are inherently suited to studying both dynamic change in context and interconnectedness. This accessible introduction to CDST research will equip readers with the knowledge to ensure compatibility between empirical research designs and the theoretical tenets of complexity. It will be of value to researchers working in the areas of applied linguistics, language pedagogy and educational linguistics and to scholars and professionals with an interest in second/foreign language acquisition and complexity theory.
Die Ordnung des Standard und die Differenzierung der Diskurse

Pages: 945
Authors: Beate Henn-Memmesheimer, Joachim Franz
Categories: Language Arts & Disciplines
Type: BOOK - Published: 2009 - Publisher: Peter Lang

Dieser Band versammelt 80 Beiträge, entstanden aus Vorträgen beim 41. Linguistischen Kolloquium, das im September 2006 an der Universität Mannheim stattfand. Das Thema «Die Ordnung des Standard und die Differenzierung der Diskurse» spannt sich auf zwischen zwei komplementären Erfahrungen: Zum einen werden in verschiedensten Handlungsfeldern Standardisierung und Normierung gefordert. Standards ermöglichen Identifikationen und werden auch von Personen anerkannt, die sie nicht genau kennen. Für viele Sprachen bedeutet dies, dass sie mit ihrer standardisierten und kodifizierten Version identifiziert werden. Zum anderen entwickeln sich in modernen Gesellschaften unablässig Ausdifferenzierungen, die durch sprachliche Differenzen subtil markiert oder überhaupt erst hergestellt werden. Sprecher setzen Zeichen, um Differenzen und Ähnlichkeiten zwischen Personen, Medien, Handlungssituationen und Sprachkulturen zu demonstrieren. Neuartige Sprech- und Schreibweisen erhalten ihre Funktionen und Bedeutungen in erster Linie aus dem Kontrast zu den standardisierten Sprachformen und des Weiteren aus ihren je eigenen Gebrauchsgeschichten. Die daraus resultierenden Entwicklungen belegen die Beiträge dieses Bandes in eindrucksvoll vielfältigen linguistischen Perspektiven.

The Linguistics of Newswriting focuses on text production in journalistic media as both a socially relevant field of language use and as a strategic field of applied linguistics. The book discusses and paves the way for scientific projects in the emerg­ing field of linguistics of newswriting. From empirical micro and theoretical macro perspectives, strategies and practices of research development and knowledge transformation are discussed. Thus, the book is addressed to researchers, teachers and coaches interested in the linguistics of professional writing in general and news­writing in particular. Together with the training materials provided on the internet www.news-writing.net, the book will also be useful to anyone who wants to become a more “discerning consumer" (Perry, 2005) or a more reflective producer of language in the media.
Rethinking Online Education

Type: BOOK - Published: 2015-11-17 - Publisher: Routledge

"Rethinking Online Education" analyzes online educational materials on the recent Iraq war aimed to be used by U.S. educators in elementary and secondary schools. It is suggested that far from being ideologically neutral, these educational materials weave together resources which provide a coherent view of the Iraq war theme, and can thus been seen as constituting a kind of an informal curriculum. Mitsikopoulou argues that the teacher resources adhere to different pedagogical discourses and constitute materializations of two broad approaches to education. A number of pedagogical issues are also raised in the discussion: What is the difference between critical thinking and critical pedagogy? How is the genre of lesson plan realized in different teaching philosophies and how do curricular texts change when they are delivered online? This important book highlights the need to explore the new forms of textuality which emerge from online curricular materials and to develop an understanding of the processes of text composition, distribution and consumption.
