Applied Linguistics and the Critical Elder suggests that ‘‘the very existence of a transgressive critical applied linguistics which attacks the foundations and goals of applied linguistics is perhaps a sign that applied linguistics is a discipline which has come of age’’ (Elder, 2004: 430). The emergence of critical applied linguistics, however, has broader implications for applied linguistics than mere maturity. By drawing on a far more extensive range of external domains than is often the case with applied linguistics, critical applied linguistics not only opens up the intellectual framework to many diverse influences, but also makes old debates over linguistics applied versus applied linguistics (for example, Widdowson, 2001) little more than a red herring.
