What Is Applied Linguistics?
James, Carl
International Journal of Applied Linguistics, v3 n1 p17-32 1993
Ostensive and expository definitions of applied linguistics are assessed. It is suggested that the key to a meaningful definition lies in the dual articulation of applied linguistics: it is an interface between linguistics and practicality. Its role as an "expert system" is suggested. (45 references) (Author/LB)
