also included.

It offers practical advice on identifying a topic, making background reading
more effective, planning and designing a project, collecting and analysing
data, writing up and presenting findings.

With over 350 project ideas that you can use directly or adapt to suit different
contexts and interests, and with chapters on how to reference effectively and
how to avoid plagiarism, this third edition of "Projects in Linguistics and
Language Studies" is a reference guide that you will use again and again
during your studies.
