Qs: Textbooks for Empirical Research Writing

Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows <kevinlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Subject: Textbooks for Empirical Research Writing

I am looking for textbook recommendations for a graduate course in
Empirical Research Writing. Our department has newly instituted this course
as part of the requirements for our MA TESOL students who are taking a
non-thesis option.

The goal of the course is to have students be able to understand and use
the writing conventions of the field (Applied Linguistics) for empirical
papers. They will be asked to analyze data and then write up a short paper
that conforms to the expected structure of research articles in the field.

The focus of course will be on the discourse of the field and on WRITING.

Any recommendations for books and/or articles that we could use would be
greatly appreciated.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
