Research Design and Methodology in Studies on L2 Tense and Aspect
Studies in Second and Foreign Language Education [SSFLE] 2
'Research Design and Methodology in Studies on Second Language Tense and Aspect' provides an up-to-date review of past and current methodologies for the study of the L2 acquisition of tense and aspect. More specifically, the book addresses the following issues related to the design of studies for research in tense and aspect:
- Theoretical frameworks (e.g., Are research questions investigated within one theoretical approach incompatible with other approaches?)
- Elicitation procedures (Do different types of tasks elicit different types of tense-aspect data?)
- Coding of data (e.g. How are lexical categories defined and coded?)
- Data analysis (e.g., What statistical tests are more appropriate to analyze language data?)
The volume provides new insights into the study of L2 tense-aspect by bringing together well renowned scholars with experience in the research design of research this area of the field.
