Abstract:

Here is a much needed introductory textbook on empirical research methods for
the Humanities. Especially aimed at students and scholars of Literature, Applied
Linguistics, and Film and Media, it stimulates readers to reflect on the problems
and possibilities of testing the empirical assumptions and offers hands-on
learning opportunities to develop empirical studies. It explains a wide range of
methods, from interviews to observation research, and guides readers through
the choices researchers have to make. It discusses the essence of
experiments, illustrates how studies are designed, how to develop
questionnaires, and helps readers to collect and analyze data by themselves.
The book presents qualitative approaches to research but focuses mostly on
quantitative methods, detailing the workings of basic statistics. At the end, the
book also shows how to give papers at international conferences, how to draft a
report, and what is involved in the preparation of a publishable article.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
                            Ling & Literature
