QUESTIONING LINGUISTICS brings together different perspectives on language studies and applications into a single volume and allows readers to examine how linguists of diverse traditions study and use this expert knowledge of language. By doing so, this volume invites us to reconsider the nature and focus of the field of study and questions a number of current thoughts about language theory, application, and use. In effect, the nature of linguistics, linguistic theory, and languages are called into question, as are the methods that we as linguists may take for granted in our developed research traditions.Scholars and researchers from within linguistics and beyond will find this volume both accessible and engaging, as it gathers the thoughts and opinions of experts in the field alongside new theorists in an open forum for discussion that diminishes the borders between these diverse threads.
