Overview Overview
 

The module provides an important overview of the discipline of Applied Linguistics and contemporary issues affecting the field today. It adopts a twofold approach. It begins by introducing students to the foundations of the field of Linguistics (historical overview of core theories, syntax and morphology, phonetics, phonology, semiotics, semantics and pragmatics) as important precursors to the entering the field of Applied Linguistics. Building on such foundations, the module continues by examining the most salient issues and debates in the field based on three pillars: the monolingual, the bilingual and the multilingual language user. In the case of each, a range of issues are discussed including language acquisition; language contact, variation and change; language and migration; language policy and planning; globalisation and language; and language and identity.
