Experimental Methods in Language Acquisition Research provides students and

experimental methods, explaining the rationale behind each one, and
providing an overview of potential participants, the procedure and
data-analysis, as well as advantages and disadvantages and dos and don’ts.
Part II focuses on comparisons across groups, addressing the theoretical,
applied and methodological issues involved in such comparative work. This

research method. It is suitable as a textbook in postgraduate programs in
the fields of linguistics, education and psychology.
