The title ‘Companion’ is suggestive of some kind of neutral reference book, an extended glossary, perhaps a mini-encyclopaedia, with some sections expounding key concepts, intended to be used by apprentices in a particular field rather than by seasoned practitioners. There is no sub-title or statement at the very beginning of this book concerning audience but one major intended readership, one soon understands, is postgraduate students and their mentors, working at masters or doctoral level and wishing to engage in, or with, research in the area of language learning.
