Abstract:

The nature of applied linguistics is an issue that has reappeared again and
again over several decades. The established paradigm met severe difficulty
during the 1960s, but has never been replaced by a coherent alternative. The
major aim of this book is to present a new approach to the discussion about
the nature of applied linguistics, one that investigates its deeper theory of
science underpinnings. A second important aim is to explore what an
alternative might look like, granted diverse developments since the original
paradigm began to be questioned. Rather than argue the case for one specific
alternative, the book suggest a viable tertium comparationis for intellectual
discussion across current tension and disparity. Such a common ground is
strongly needed within graduate and postgraduate programmes.

The first part of this book presents applied linguistics as seen within theory
and history of science. The emerging picture is empirically confronted with
the world of practitioners. The second part presents tentative integration, in
theory of language, theory of learning and research methodology, and ends with
an empirical study illustrating principles of research. The third part returns
to theory of science, discussing ontological aspects of our core research
object – problems of linguistic communication.
