This lecture covers all major areas of applied linguistics, esp. sociolinguistics,
stylistics, psycholinguistics/second-language learning, CALL, language testing, translation
studies, discourse analysis, corpus linguistics, contrastive linguistics, lexicography and language,
thought and culture/intercultural communication.
In this lecture, you gain a very broad survey of the field and learn about exemplary approaches that
also have a job-oriented perspective:
The approach will be based on the critical evaluation of sections in Wikipedia and in the Handbook of Applied Linguistics edited by Alan Davies/Catherine Elder for Blackwell in 2004.
This course will be accompanied by its own www page.
