Abstract:

*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 referencesmentioned in the text

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

The four sections each offer: *Several reviews of different broad areas orsubfields *Articles with a more narrow focus or demonstrating theapplication of an approach *International scope *Diversity of scholarlyperspectives

The resultant breadth and depth of theoretical and methodological researchperspective makes this a unique and highly valuable resource.
