Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics is a series of introductory level textbooks covering the core topics in Applied Linguistics, primarily designed for those beginning postgraduate studies or taking an introductory MA course, as well as advanced undergraduates. Titles in the series are also ideal for language professionals returning to academic study.
The books take an innovative 'practice to theory' approach, with a 'back-to-front' structure. This leads the reader from real-world problems and issues, through a discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns, before finally relating these practical issues to theoretical foundations.
Exploring Digital Communication aims to discuss real-world issues pertaining to digital communication, and to explore how linguistic research addresses these challenges. The text is divided into three sections (Problems and practices; Interventions; and Theory), each of which is further divided into two subsections which reflect linguistic issues relating to digital communication.
The author seeks to demystify any perceived divide between online and offline communication, arguing that issues raised in relation to digital communication throw light on language use and practices in general, and thus linguistic interventions in this area have implications not only for users of digital communication but for linguists' general understanding of language and society.
Including relevant research examples, tasks and a glossary, this textbook is an invaluable resource for postgraduate and upper undergraduate students taking New Media or Communication Studies modules within Applied Linguistics and English Language courses.

"This book provides an insightful and wide-ranging examination of the nature of digital communication, and makes a cogent argument for why a focus on language can be particularly productive for understanding the impact that internet-based communications technologies are having on society." Philip Seargeant, The Open University, UK
"This bookis a welcome contribution to the growing literature on language use and digital practices. Focusing on compelling examples taken from diverse forms of digital media, Tagg engages with important social issues ranging from privacy, to isolation, to the increasingly blurred boundaries between online and offline communication.Comprehensive in scope, erudite, and accessible in style, this book will certainly be of interest to scholars and students of communication and language studies." Camilla Vasquez, University of South Florida, USA
"The innovative approach devised by the series editors will make this series very attractive to students, teacher educators, and even to a general readership, wanting to explore and understand the field of applied linguistics. The volumes in this series take as their starting point the everyday professional problems and issues that applied linguists seek to illuminate. The volumes are authoritatively written, using an engaging 'back-to'front' structure that moves from practical interests to the conceptual bases and theories that underpin applications of practice.' Anne Burns, Aston University, UK
