Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics consists of introductory level textbooks covering the core topics in Applied Linguistics, designed for those entering postgraduate studies and language professionals returning to academic study. The books take an innovative "practice to theory" approach, with a ?back to front? structure which takes the reader from real life problems and issues in the field, then enters into a discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns. The final section concludes by tying the practical issues to theoretical foundations. Additional features include tasks with commentaries, a glossary of key terms, and an annotated further reading section. Vocabulary is the foundation of language and language learning and as such knowledge of how to facilitate learners? vocabulary growth is an indispensable teaching skill and curricular component. Exploring Vocabulary begins with discussions of vocabulary issues familiar to language educators, continues with discussions of possible intervention and engagement with these problems, and concludes by tying these more practical issues to research findings and theoretical foundations. The book aims to equip language teachers and professionals with a framework for dealing with the vocabulary needs of English language learners in a variety of contexts, for a range of learners.
