Description:
This volume establishes the salient conceptualizations of language constructs with reference to the development of language pedagogy and applied linguistics in the UK over the period 1913 to 2012 and compares these with the constructs underlying the tasks employed in English language testing by a leading UK examining board over the same period. It documents for the first time the historical development of our understanding of the English language construct and shows how English language testing in this period has been shaped by socio-economic considerations, language teaching as well as by socio-cognitive theoretical advances in applied linguistics.
