New applied linguistics books?

Written By: daveski on April 2, 2009 1 Comment

Have you seen any new or old books out that are worth taking a look at? I’ve been keeping my eye on the LinguistList over the last several days and these look pretty interesting:

  • Language Teaching, edited by Michael Toolan. A collection of chapters in Roy Harris’ integrational linguistics tradition that says it debunks the idea that integrational linguistics is too ‘theoretical’ and not useful in the language classroom
  • Language of New Media Design, by Radan Martinec and Theo van Leeuwen. A textbook that gives approaches for designing and analyzing non-linear, multimedia texts.

Oh, and here’s one that’s at the other end of the production process — a proposal looking for chapters:

  • Beyond the Language Classroom, to be edited by applied linguist Hayo Reinders. From the description: “The aim of the book is to provide an account of the range of settings and types of learning and teaching beyond the classroom and to develop a broad theoretical understanding of this area of research and practice.”

Any other interesting books out there, in the making or fresh on the shelves?
