Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced book.

Research Methods in Linguistics guides the reader through the key issues,
principles, and contributions of core methods in linguistic research. It is
an essential resource for researchers and research students looking for
clear introductions to key concepts, accessible discussions of theory and
practice through illustrative examples, and critical engagement with
current debates.

Topics include: developing research questions; combining methods;
quantitative research designs (including questionnaires, chi-square tests
and t-tests); corpus analysis; qualitative research methods (discourse
analytic approaches, linguistic ethnography, interviews & focus groups,
multimodal analysis, and narrative analysis).

With each chapter offering an overview of key issues, many examples from
recent linguistic research, and suggestions for further reading, this book
will be an invaluable resource for anyone working with linguistic data.

"This is the ideal book for any research methods course in the area of
sociolinguistics and discourse analysis. The coverage is extremely
comprehensive - from how to write your research questions to how to
collect, analyse and interpret your data - written in a very accessible
style by well-established young scholars whose enthusiasm for their topics
is infectious. With its captivating examples, and practical advice
(including how to use basic statistical tests), it will prove a boon both
to students and experienced researchers."
- Janet Holmes, Professor of Linguistics, Victoria University of
Wellington, New Zealand

"With its comprehensive coverage, this refreshing book provides a useful
guide for doing research alongside thoughtful discussion of key research
issues. As well as traditional qualitative and quantitative approaches,
chapters cover corpus research, various forms of discourse analysis,
narrative analysis, multimodal analysis, linguistic ethnography and much
more. It will be essential reading for both beginning students and
experienced researchers."
- David Barton, Professor of Language and Literacy, Lancaster University, UK

"An impressive collection that brings together a wide range of methods and
analytical approaches in the study of language use. Chapters cover "the
basics", including extensive illustration, while also exploring problems,
controversies and debates within the field. A valuable resource for
research students in linguistics."
- Joan Swann, Senior Lecturer and Director of the Centre for Language and
Communications, Open University, UK
