Applied Linguistics

New Titles and Key Backlist

Welcome to the Applied Linguistics Online Catalogue

We are continuing to expand our diverse range of Applied Linguistics textbooks, reference books and monographs. We hope you will find many new books in this catalogue of interest.

In March we launched a new strand to our programme, Routledge Linguistics Classics. We are drawing on our rich heritage to reissue and update four seminal linguistics texts: Verbal Hygiene, Authority in Language, Local Literacies and Vocabulary: Applied Linguistic Perspectives.

More publishing highlights can be seen below or simply click on the subject area you are interested in on the left hand side of this page. This catalogue represents a small selection of our list, to see our full range of titles visit
