Anmeldelser

«Many contributors [to this volume] shine with their generous and insightful chapters ... This addition to the Bloomsbury Research Methods in Linguistics series surveys a considerable array of research practices and thinking ... and it does so with commendable concision.»

BALEAP

«This is a really welcome book: engaging, readable, personable, accessible, useful, and interesting. I would certainly recommend it to beginner research students.»

ELT Journal (of the first edition)

«This important volume, the work of a diverse group of experienced researchers, introduces beginning researchers to the available resources on research approaches to language teaching and learning ... It is an excellent companion to anyone interested in doing research in Applied Linguistics. The book is relevant to students as well as experienced researchers as, apart from succinctly describing principal concepts in research methodology, it also provides references useful for further investigation ... The key issues and sociolinguistic areas relevant to research methods are clearly addressed [...] making it an invaluable resource for language teaching and learning. The strength [...] is in the clear and cohesive structure of both parts of the volume, the clarity of style consistent throughout, and practical illustrations make the book a very valuable and motivating read.»

Australian Review of Applied Linguistics (of the first edition)

«The collection is recommended not only to the students who are its intended readership, but also to supervisors of specific topics and to lecturers on research methods wanting up-to-date summaries.»

Discourse Studies (of the first edition)

«The editors made strong choices in their selection of authors for the individual chapters, most of which are well known in their fields ... The result is a solid volume, coherently constructed, written in accessible language for the target audiences ... Students will undoubtedly find this book to be a good resource as they select a research methodology, and it will help them better understand the concerns associated with their selection ... What Paltridge and Phakiti have done well is to meld discussion not only of qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods and research techniques and approaches, but also of a great number of other considerations (ethics, sample studies, lists of academic journals in applied linguistics, etc.) into one orderly, intelligible and effective presentation of material.»

LINGUISTLIST

«What I love about this book is the comprehensive material it provides: it discusses the essential elements of each research method and illustrates with samples from previous research. This fact makes this book unique and vital to Applied Linguistics researchers.»

Claudia Marcela Chapeton, Universidad Pedagogica Nacional, Bogotá, Colombia

«The book is comprehensive. I particularly like the break-down into two sections: one on methods, and one on specific areas of research within language acquisition and use.»

Olga Griswold, Associate Professor, California State Polytechnic University - Pomona, USA
