The essays and research papers in this collection explore current issues in Language Education, English for Academic Purposes, Contrastive Discourse Analysis, and Language Policy and Planning, and outline promising directions for theory and practice in applied linguistics. The collection also honours the life-long contribution of Robert B. Kaplan to the field.There was even a time, according to Ann Johns (this volume), when many in the profession thought that: good writing is about structure. ... areas; on the teaching front, for example, he introduced various approaches to formulating academic essays (e.g. Kaplan, 1971, 1980b). But this may seem like ancient history. Certainly, as Johns shows in Chapter 7, EAP is now a different and more complex field.
