              Taking students and instructors step by step through the major issues surrounding the use of English in the aviation industry, this book provides a clear introduction to turning research into practice in the field of English for Specific Purposes (ESP) and a valuable case study o...f applied linguistics in action. With both cutting-edge research and evidence-based practice, the authors, all experts in this field, explore the critical role of English in aviation across a variety of contexts. These include the national and global policies impacting training and language assessment for pilots, air-traffic controllers, ground staff and students. Focusing on a very important but not well addressed area of ESP research and pedagogy, this book uses a range of corpus-based findings, simulator transcripts, and related research to provide an effective and efficient analysis of the language needs of the aviation industry and an extended look at linguistic principles in action. With case studies, transcriptions, radiotelephony and a clear breakdown of the common vocabulary and phrasal patterns of aviation discourse, the book offers students and teachers an insight into the requirements and challenges of successful intercultural communication in this industry, as well as clarifying how to teach, develop and assess aviation English language courses.

              Corpus Approaches to Sociolinguistics illustrates how sociolinguistic approaches and linguistic distributions from corpora can be effectively combined to produce meaningful studies of language use and language variation. Three major parts comprise the volume focusing on: (1) Corp...ora and the Study of Languages and Dialects, in particular, varieties of global Englishes; (2) Corpora and Social Demographics, and (3) Corpora and Register Characteristics. The 14 peer-reviewed, new and original chapters explore language variation related to regional dialectology, gender, sexuality, age, race, 'nation,' workplace discourse, diachronic change, and social media and web registers. Invited contributors made use of systematically-designed general and specialized corpora, sound research questions, methodologies (e.g., keyword analysis, multi-dimensional analysis, clusters and collocations), and logical/credible interpretive techniques. Corpus Approaches to Sociolinguistics is an important resource for researchers and graduate students in the fields of sociolinguistics, corpus linguistics and applied linguistics.

              In the last decade, the availability of corpora and the technological advancements of corpus tools have increased dramatically. Applied linguists have greater access to data from around the world and in a variety of languages through websites, blogs, and social networking sites, ...and there is a high level of interest among these scholars in applying corpora and corpus-based methods to other research areas, particularly sociolinguistics. This innovative guidebook presents a systematic, in-depth account of using corpora in sociolinguistics. It introduces and expands the application of corpora and corpus approaches and tools in sociolinguistic research, surveys the growing number of studies in corpus-based sociolinguistics, and provides instructions and options for designing and developing corpus-based studies. Readers will find practical information on such contemporary topics and workplace registers, megacorpora, and using the web as a corpus. Vignettes, case studies, discussion questions, and activities throughout further enhance students' involvement with the material and provide opportunities for hands-on practice of the methods discussed. Corpus-Based Sociolinguistics is a comprehensive and accessible guide, a must-read for any student or scholar interested in exploring this popular and promising approach to sociolinguistic research.
