Omar 1 An Introduction to Applied Linguistics Introduction Applied Linguistics (AL ) is considered a new and burgeoning discipline. “Applied Linguistics has. PDF | On Jan 1, , Jean-Marc Dewaele and others published An Introduction to Applied Linguistics. From Practice to Theory.

    However, what exactly is meant by AL is quite controversial and somehow vague. It is described differently by many scholars. However, through the above aspects, AL merits itself to be an academic discipline. To approach AL as an academic discipline, the present paper is organized into the following sections: Linguistics applied vs. Linguistics applied vs. To solve those problems, applied linguists turn to the discipline of linguistics to seek insight and potential solutions. Rather, AL is thought to be problem-driven, not theory-driven discipline. That is to say, the problem applied linguists attended to decides what discipline to draw on to find insights and possible solutions. In contrast to linguistics applied, AL draws on a greater range of disciplines in its research and applying methods and theories from psycholinguistics, sociology, education, measurement theory and so on Davies, Furthermore, what it is that AL more concerned about is data rather than theory, i. This made Ellis to contrast to models of theory which reflects the variation between linguistics applied and AL. The models are like theory- then-research and research-then-theory: the former referred to Linguistics applied and the latter to AL. One can conclude that a kind of congruence can be seen between the topic areas proposed by AAAL and language problems by McCarthy.

    Your friend sees it and become excited' it is a nice watch, man, where did you get it? Given the answers of the native speaker participants, the answer of Kurdish learner of English does not correspond to native speakers reply to a compliment in that they never offer the object to the person who complimented the object.

    On the other hand, the answer of the Kurdish learners of English resembles the answer by Kurdish native speaker. What answer could be obtained from analysis of the above reply by a non-native speaker of English?

    Indeed, the above questions the teacher considers are brought into the fore, and one of them might have an insight and a possible solution to the problem.

    On the other hand, to tackle the issue under enquiry might need to conduct and implement a prescribed methodology, and the degree of its reliability of that method and its tool of data collection are also points need to be considered. Thus, the AL way of approaching a language problem goes through some phases in which the theory, method, data collection tool, data analysis and the results are all liable to be scrutinized and tested.

    In case of positive transfer, the pattern or structure might be similar to that of the foreign language and vice versa. Other questions might be does this a strategy by the learner to enhance the learning process?

    Thus many questions emerge when approaching that problem. According to McCarthy the success of any applied enterprise depends on: Thus, one can posit that AL, as a discipline, has its own methods and approaches to deal with language problems. Conclusion All the above preliminary points and views on applied linguistics emphasize its multi-faceted nature.

    However, given the positions in the above definitions, there is a consensus that AL is a real-world language- related problem-driven discipline with a theoretical stance. Practicing AL needs to recourse to linguistics and a range of other disciplines such as psychology, sociology, etc. Thus, applied linguists have a critical view towards real-world language — related problems.

The models are like theory- then-research and research-then-theory: the former referred to Linguistics applied and the latter to AL. One can conclude that a kind of congruence can be seen between the topic areas proposed by AAAL and language problems by McCarthy. The scope of AL is still remained somehow vague.

    Definitions of AL Applied linguistics does not lend itself to an easy definition, perhaps because it means many things to many people.

    Cook defined it as "the academic discipline concerned with the relation of knowledge about language to decision making in the real world" p. Grabe described what AL is trying to do with the people who involved in doing AL: Omar 6 The focus of applied linguistics is on trying to resolve language- based problems that people encounter in the real world, whether they be learners, teachers, supervisors, academics, lawyers, service providers, those who need social services, test takers, policy developers, dictionary makers, translators, or a whole range of business clients p.

    Richards and Schmidt , in turn, defined it as: First, the study of second and foreign language learning and teaching. Secondly, the study of language and linguistics in relation to practical problems, such as lexicography, translation, speech pathology, etc.

    In the light of the above definitions of the discipline, AL is a problem-driven discipline which used to happen in the real world in which language is the state of affairs.

    Major Trends in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics 3

    Theories in applied linguistics The diversity of approach marks out the domains of operation of applied linguistics. Richards and Schmidt stated: Applied linguistics uses information from sociology, psychology, anthropology, and information theory as well as from linguistics in order to develop its own theoretical models of language and Omar 7 language use, and then uses this information and theory in practical areas such as syllabus design, speech therapy, language planning, stylistics, etc.

    Applied linguists can hardly not be theoretical as in any problem- situation certain perspective, a set of beliefs or attitudes that inform the decision which is taken to resolve the problem. Thus being theoretical and have a theoretical stance does not mean to be a conformist and is not allegiance to theories.

    McCarthy confirms this point, he stated "the theoretical life-blood of applied linguistics is not allegiance to theories but is more a commitment to a discourse" p. Crystal described this discourse as: the communication of varied positions among peers using a shared language that enables us to find common ground with the positions taken by others already reported and established" p. Thus, McCarthy concludes the discussion like "Encountering problems and adopting a convincing stance towards them is what defines applied linguistics as a discipline" p.

    Finally, the positive characteristics of AL are 1 lack of unitary theory and clear disciplinary boundaries, 2 openness to outside influence, 3 "and the community of applied linguists has characterized itself in the historiography of the discipline by variety and Catholicism of theoretical orientation" McCarthy, , p.

    The problem No. According to McCarthy , the teacher confronts the same basic questions: Can linguistics offer an approach or a solution to the problem? If so, which branch es of linguistic study, and by what method s? How reliable is the information offered by linguists?

    How tenable are their theories and models of the language? How willing and Omar 9 ready are linguists to contribute to this kind of practical undertaking?

    Your friend sees it and become excited' it is a nice watch, man, where did you get it? Given the answers of the native speaker participants, the answer of Kurdish learner of English does not correspond to native speakers reply to a compliment in that they never offer the object to the person who complimented the object. On the other hand, the answer of the Kurdish learners of English resembles the answer by Kurdish native speaker.

    What answer could be obtained from analysis of the above reply by a non-native speaker of English?

    Indeed, the above questions the teacher considers are brought into the fore, and one of them might have an insight and a possible solution to the problem. This can be done through recourse to the levels of linguistics to find out which is most addresses the present Omar 11 problem. On the other hand, to tackle the issue under enquiry might need to conduct and implement a prescribed methodology, and the degree of its reliability of that method and its tool of data collection are also points need to be considered.

    Thus, the AL way of approaching a language problem goes through some phases in which the theory, method, data collection tool, data analysis and the results are all liable to be scrutinized and tested.

    In case of positive transfer, the pattern or structure might be similar to that of the foreign language and vice versa. Other questions might be does this a strategy by the learner to enhance the learning process? Thus many questions emerge when approaching that problem. According to McCarthy the success of any applied enterprise depends on: 1- Identifying and defining problems 2- Contextualizing those problems within linguistic study and developing a theoretical stance.

    Thus, one can posit that AL, as a discipline, has its own methods and approaches to deal with language problems. Conclusion All the above preliminary points and views on applied linguistics emphasize its multi-faceted nature.

    However, given the positions in the above definitions, there is a consensus that AL is a real-world language- related problem-driven discipline with a theoretical stance.
