In Reflections on Language and Language Learning: In honour of Arthur van Essen, thirty-one leading language scholars and educational linguists in the Netherlands and abroad with whom over the years Professor van Essen, one of the grandees of applied linguistics, has collaborated provide original essays and studies which discuss the most recent insights and trends in the fields of linguistics and foreign language teaching. While interdisciplinary in scope, the volume encompasses theoretical advances in (educational) linguistic thinking; for example, the perceptive articles written by Michael Byram, Christopher N. Candlin, Natalia Gvishiani, Peter Jordens, Jan Koster, Leo van Lier, and Bondi Sciarone — as well as a sample of the latest methodological developments in areas such as ELT, LSP, and content-based language teaching; cases in point are the useful contributions by Jeanine Deen & Hilde Hacquebord, Michaël Goethals, Paul Meara & Ignacio Rodríguez Sánchez, Rosamond Mitchell & Christopher Brumfit, and Uta Thürmer.

Table of Contents
“This book contains papers of interest to many language professionals, but it is most likely to complement the libraries of scholars in applied linguistics who tread the line between SLA and its application to teaching and who are interested in a kaleidoscopic view of contemporary, mostly European work in the field.”
“This volume is indeed multidisciplinary, as the editors claims, and does, I think, go beyond the traditional festschrift in that it contains some of the finest papers in applied linguistics and educational linguistics to date.”
