Applied Linguistics: What's That?
Markee, Numa
System, v18 n3 p315-23 1990
The historical development of strong and weak definitions of applied linguistics is traced. It is argued that weak definitions do not limit themselves to resolution of second-language teaching problems, potentially address all practical language-related problems, and provide the necessary flexibility for realistic theory and practice of applied linguistics.
