課程概述

Course Description: This course introduces students to the broad field of applied linguistics and several areas under its domain, such as grammar, pragmatics, corpus linguistics, and sociolinguistics (areas not covered by other MA required courses will be more emphasized). Research approaches and methodologies for applied linguistics will also be considered. The course content especially emphasizes the relevance of applied linguistics to foreign language pedagogy, and students will be encouraged to make such connections.
