What Sinclair says about language expresses the SLA assumption about language learning as well: We are teaching English in ignorance of a vast amount of basic fact. This is not our fault, but it should not inhibit the absorption of new material. (Sinclair, 1985: 252) This talk about fact takes us back to the remarks of Labov (1988) cited earlier. ’ It is of interest to note that all the large ones that Labov mentions are all matters dealt with by the ‘hard’ scientific disciplines: the origin of the universe by astrophysics, the direction of continental drift by geology, the evolution of the human species by genetics.

Language policy scholars The final category consists of those whose fundamental interest is in the nature and process of language policy, spending their time collecting and publishing empirical evidence that characterizes the field and developing theoretical models to account for what appears to happen in it. vp 03 August 2005 22:14:29 Color profile: Disabled Composite Default screen Directions in Applied Linguistics 36 criticized by activists as socially irresponsible, they are starting to build on the work of scholars in the other categories to create an emerging model of the complexity of language policy.

Applied linguistics cannot be selective in this way. If it claims to engage with language problems in the real world, it cannot just reduce these to data to substantiate some theory or other. Its procedures must somehow work in reverse: instead of looking at how actual language experience can be used to substantiate abstraction, it must look at how abstraction can be used to take a different fix on actuality. We renew connection with folk realities, not so as to use them as data, but to see them in alternative terms, to reformulate what is problematic about them in the light of a detached disciplinary perspective.
