Routledge English Language Introductions cover core areas of language study and are one-stop resources for students.
Assuming no prior knowledge, books in the series offer an accessible overview of the subject, with activities, study questions, sample analyses, commentaries and key readings – all in the same volume. The innovative and flexible 'two-dimensional' structure is built around four sections – introduction, development, exploration and extension – which offer self-contained stages for study. Each topic can also be read across these sections, enabling the reader to build gradually on the knowledge gained.

Researching English Language:

  • includes an extensive range of activities and points for discussion
  • illustrates each topic with examples from actual student projects and published studies
  • includes key readings from leading English language researchers, including Ronald Carter; Jennifer Coates; Ruqaiya Hasan; Roz Ivanič; Ben Rampton; John Sinclair.

About the Author:

Alison Sealey is Senior Lecturer in the Department of English at the University of Birmingham.

Review:

'... a highly engaging and admirably reflective introduction to researching English language... excellent introduction to research for any student or beginning researcher to discourse and conversation analysis in English. Important issues and complex concepts are formulated accessibly, critically and with a high degree of reflection. I highly recommend this book to any student about to embark on an undergraduate or postgraduate research project.' - Beatrice Szczepek Reed, LinguistList

‘This is a well structured, comprehensive and accessible guide to researching the English Language. It answers the most frequently occurring questions asked by students who are new to research, and offers guidelines that will help to make their projects manageable. However, at no point does it limit students’ horizons. Nor does it lose the larger intellectual vision which drives research, even at beginner level.’ Caroline Coffin, The Open University, UK

Researching English Language is a book brimming with excellent observations, case examples, and well-focused exercises. The book draws on recent and authoritative sources, and emphasizes the indispensable notion of "triangulation" in which findings are corroborated based on different (and yet complementary) types of linguistic evidence and research methodology.’ Vincent Ooi, National University of Singapore
