“This is the most extensive resource on applied linguistics yet published...The breadth of treatment throughout the collection is quite amazing...”  (Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 1 May 2015)  

“Overall, this is a remarkable work. It is useful and rigorous. If you thought you already knew what AL does then browse it; you might have to think again. I am in no doubt that this will remain the standard work for years to come and the benchmark against which new works will be judged. As a linguist and a librarian, I have no hesitations in recommending it.”  (Reference Reviews, 1 November 2013)

“Summing Up: Highly recommended. All academic libraries; lower-level undergraduates through professionals/practitioners.”  (Choice, 1 August 2013)
