What is applied
linguistics? What do applied linguists do?
Though the term "applied
linguistics" has traditionally been associated with the scientific
study of such areas as TESOL, TEFL, TESL, language teaching and
learning, applied linguists do a variety of things:
basic idea is, as the definition implies, to contribute to the
real-world issues. Some of the questions that applied
linguists ask include:
can languages best be learnt and taught?
social factors affect language learning?
can technology be used to contribute to the effectiveness of language
-What are the related problems
associated with language disorders? How can these be prevented?
