Title: Research Methods in Language and Education
Edited By: Kendall A. King
Nancy H. Hornberger
URL: http://www.springer.com/education+%26+language/linguistics/book/978-90-481-9400-1
Description:

*Features global coverage of language and education
*Necessary reference for every university and college library topic
*Contains essential information on research methods in language and education
*Each review includes a list that features about 30 key references
mentioned in the text

This volume, Research Methods in Language and Education, offers an overview
of the wide range of methodological approaches to language and education
across the axes of micro and macro-linguistic and social levels of
analysis, as well as the multiple connections between them.

The four sections each offer: *Several reviews of different broad areas or
subfields *Articles with a more narrow focus or demonstrating the
application of an approach *International scope *Diversity of scholarly
perspectives

The resultant breadth and depth of theoretical and methodological research
perspective makes this a unique and highly valuable resource. This is one
of ten volumes of the Encyclopedia of Language and Education published by
Springer. The Encyclopedia bears testimony to the dynamism and evolution of
the language and education field, as it confronts the ever-burgeoning and
irrepressible linguistic diversity and ongoing pressures and expectations
placed on education around the world.
