Submissions of book proposals are invited for the ''Continuum Critical 
Introductions to Linguistics'' series, which is committed to providing 
original introductions to core areas in linguistics that give accessible 
overviews from a critical perspective. They present key issues and 
methods of the given area and demonstrate their application to 
empirical language data, as well as highlighting underlying theoretical 
assumptions and new research perspectives, and reflecting them 
critically, in the tradition of Roger Fowler's Critical Linguistics approach. 
The series is targeted at academics and advanced undergraduate 
students and postgraduate students in applied linguistics.

Particular emphasis is put on analyzing examples from language use in 
the real world, as well as from a wide variety of languages, with a view 
to comparative cross- and inter-cultural observations. Theoretical and 
methodological disputes in the relevant research fields are considered 
primarily in relation to their contribution to solving descriptive and 
explanative issues arising from the data, rather than being assessed 
on theory-internal grounds. On the other hand, the contributions to the 
series strive to relate the respective research traditions to general 
questions about the epistemological status and the socio-cultural 
function of linguistics.

Areas covered include not only systemic linguistic domains of 
phonology, syntax and semantics but also more applied and open-
ended fields such as discourse types, cross-cultural pragmatics 
dimensions and translation concerns. In particular, we are inviting book 
proposals in the following areas:

Applied Linguistics 
Computational Linguistics
Corpus Linguistics
Conversation Analysis
Discourse Analysis
Forensic Linguistics
History of Linguistics
Intercultural Pragmatics
Language and Education
Language and Gender
Language of Advertising 
Media Discourse
Multimodal Discourse Analysis
Politeness Studies
Pragmatics
Psycholinguistics
Relevance Theory
Semantics
Stylistics
Sociolinguistics
Subtitling
