Studies in Applied Linguistics & TESOL (SALT) is dedicated to publishing research in the fields of Applied Linguistics and TESOL. Its mission is two-fold: 1) to promote efficient dissemination of research, and 2) to facilitate academic exchange between the TESOL/ Applied Linguistics students/ faculty and members of the profession world-wide. Within a conceptual framework that values an integration of theory and practice, the journal publishes full-length articles dealing, in a principled way, with language, language use, language acquisition, language teaching, and language assessment. The journal particularly welcomes submissions in the following areas: second language acquisition, second language assessment, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, discourse analysis, second language instruction and second language teacher education. Reviews of books in these areas are also welcomed. ISSN 2576-2907.
