Praise for the Encyclopedia of Applied Linguistics
“Carol A. Chapelle, with her all-star cast of editors, has brought together a remarkably diverse group of scholars … The result is breathtaking in its comprehensive coverage of the field, critical engagement with a stunning array of relevant issues, and incorporation of cutting-edge technologies. This is a reference work I will recommend to my colleagues, collaborators, and students and to which I will return again and again as I carry out my work.”
