The Applied Linguistics Interest Section (ALIS) promotes research in all areas of language use, particularly research that contributes to our understanding of language learning and teaching. This Interest Section aims to promulgate knowledge derived from such research among its members, among the broad membership of TESOL, and among the population at large. ALIS draws on linguistics as well as sister disciplines in psychology, sociology, education, and other areas in an attempt to address real-world, language-based issues pertinent to English language teaching.
