Abstract:

Focuses for the first time on materials development and applications of
current research and theory for the main areas of applied linguistics (e.g.
second language acquisition, pragmatics, vocabulary studies). There are many
books on applied linguistic theory and research and there are now a number of
books on the principled development of materials for language learning, but
this book takes a new approach by connecting the two concerns.

Each of its chapters first of all presents relevant theories and research
conclusions for its area and then considers practical applications for
materials development. The chapters achieve these applications by reporting
and commenting on current theory and research, by analysing the match between
current published materials and current theory and by suggesting and
exemplifying applications of current theory to materials development.

This will be an essential resource both for those studying or teaching
materials development and for those studying or teaching applied linguistics.

"For many years Brian Tomlinson has led the way internationally in the field
of materials development. This edited book by him is another example of
innovative, research-based exploration of materials for language teaching that
never loses sight of the classroom nor of the need for pedagogy that is
reflective, informed and learner-sensitive. And there is a great cast-list of
contributors. Highly recommended." - Ronald Carter, University of Nottingham,
UK
