Abstract


  • Editorial: In their introduction to the first issue of the relaunched Journal of Applied

    Linguistics and Professional Practice ( JALPP), Sarangi and Candlin (2010)

    give two readings to the conjunction of ‘applied linguistics’ and ‘professional

    practice’ in the title, signalling two complementary agendas in applied

    linguistics research. The first agenda is to extend the study of language and

    communication to a wider range of professional contexts, i.e. to respecify

    the field of applied linguistics; the second is to contribute to the transformation

    and recontextualization of the professional practices of applied linguists

    in advancing knowledge and providing professional judgement. Following

    this lead, this special issue presents six papers which draw inspiration from

    Hallidayan scholarship in Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) to analyse,

    interpret and make sense of professional practices across a range of sites and

    from a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives, and in this introduction we

    set out and reflect on the appliability (Halliday 2007) of SFL as a mediational

    means in such research settings.
