Title: The Think-Aloud Controversy in Second Language Research
Written By: Melissa A Bowles
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415994842/
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition Research Series
Description:

The Think-Aloud Controversy in Second Language Research aims to answer key
questions about the validity and uses of think-alouds, verbal reports
completed by research participants while they perform a task. It offers an
overview of how think-alouds have been used in language research and
presents a quantitative meta-analysis of findings from studies involving
verbal tasks and think-alouds. The book begins by presenting the
theoretical background and empirical research that has examined the
reactivity of think-alouds, then offers guidance regarding the practical
issues of data collection and analysis, and concludes with implications for
the use of think-alouds in language research. With its focus on a
much-discussed and somewhat controversial data elicitation method in
language research, this timely work is relevant to students and researchers
from all theoretical perspectives who collect first or second language
data. It serves as a valuable guide for any language researcher who is
considering using think-alouds.
