The series attracts single or co-authored volumes from authors researching at the cutting edge of this dynamic field of interdisciplinary enquiry. The titles range from books that make such developments accessible to the non-specialist reader to those which explore in depth their relevance for the way language is to be conceived as a subject, and how courses and classroom activities are to be designed. As such, these books not only extend the field of applied linguistics itself and lend an additional significance to its enquiries, but also provide an indispensable professional foundation for language pedagogy and its practice.

The scope of the series includes: second language acquisitionbilingualism and multi/plurilingualismlanguage pedagogy and teacher educationtesting and assessmentlanguage planning and policylanguage internationalization technology-mediated communicationdiscourse-, conversation-, and contrastive-analysispragmaticsstylisticslexicographytranslation

'...offers its readers a monumental collection of work, with contributions by experts in the field who reflect on 30 years of LLS research and practice. It seeks to chart a clear direction not only for those of us in the field but also for those newcomers who, inspired by LLS research, aspire to innovate language teaching and to optimize student learning. I am ready to recommend this book to academics, researchers, and graduate students who are interested in helping students to improve performance in second/foreign language learning.' * Lawrence Jun Zhang, Applied Linguistics Journal *
