Abstract [en]

The chapter gives an extensive and multifaceted presentation of the field of applied linguistics. It starts with a discussion of the term 'applied linguistics' focusing on how this term has been interpreted over time and in different traditions.  The overview of research is then organized around different settings:  the educational setting, the economic-technical setting, legal and bureacratic settings; the medical-social setting; the workplace; science and the academic setting.
