Twenty-six international academics, researchers, and independent scholars contribute to a text honoring Robert B. Kaplan, whose work as a linguist and educator has supported the role of applied linguistics in bridging theory and practice. The text offers a broad perspective on past developments, current debates, and future trends in the field. Seventeen essays and research papers are organized into sections on perspectives on applied linguistics, language education, English for academic purposes, contrastive discourse analysis, and language policy and planning. A sampling of topics: applied linguistics, interdisciplinarity, and disparate realities; research perspectives on non-native English-speaking educators; teachers' perceptions of lexical anomalies; cross-cultural variation in classroom turn-taking practices; and micro language planning. Distributed in the U.S. by UTP Distribution.
