Studies in French Applied Linguistics invites the reader to adopt a broad perspective on applied linguistics, illustrating the fascinating multifaceted work researchers are conducted in so many various, inter-connected subfields. The five chapters of the first part are dedicated to the first and second language acquisition of French in various settings: First language acquisition by normal children from a generative perspective and by children with Specific Language Impairment; second language acquisition in Canadian immersion settings, from a neurolinguistic approach to phonology and natural language processing and CALL. The six chapters of the second part explore the contribution of French in various subfields of applied linguistics such as an anthropological approach to literacy issues in Guadeloupean Kréyòl, literacy issues in new technologies, phonological and lexical innovations in the banlieues, French in North Africa, language planning and policy in Quebec, as well as the emerging field of forensic linguistics from an historical perspective.

“The present collection of articles serves as the continuation of Dalila Ayoun's 2007 edited volume French Applied Linguistics...Overall, I do like the volume and its contents, which I expect to make an important contribution to the field of (French) applied linguistics. Students, teaching faculty, and researchers will most likely find many of the contributions useful, and they may even discover new fields of interest in applied linguistics.”
