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.

I'm currently working on my PhD on Communication Strategies of ESL learners
in spoken interaction. I've a question on this topic:
I used data from audio video taping, field notes (observations),
retrospective interviews (twice, which was held once after I've given the
task to my subjects & the other one after I've transcribed the transcripts
- I also watched the recording with the subjects & showed them the
transcripts during the interview), and questionnaire (given immediately to
the subjects after the task) in order to identify the types of
communication strategies in the data.
Thus, I've used 4 methods to triangulate the data. Is this enough to say
that I'm sure that the strategy identified is the STRATEGY (based on the
description in the taxonomy of communication strategies (I used Dornyei &
Zoltan's taxonomy) and the triangulation method, instead of a different
I'm looking forward to any suggestions that would help me clarify this point.
