Review:

Provides excellent guidance and material for those intending to research aspects of language. This is a good book and, while written for undergraduate and postgraduate students in the field of language, it should serve as an important starting block for professionals wanting to become practitioner-researchers in this field.

Excellent resource for any project-based course
Professor J Coates, University of Surrey
