An in-depth introduction to all research methods in linguistics, this is the ideal textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Research Methods are important skills for students of linguistics to learn prior to undertaking research projects at either undergraduate or postgraduate level.

This comprehensive introduction to research methods in linguistics guides the student through these areas, offering advice at a theoretical and practical level. The book covers formal, computational, quantitative and qualitative research methods in detail, and each chapter is written by an academic renowned in the field. Topics covered include: using corpora, questionnaire design, computer-assisted content analysis, interview methods, observation, fieldwork in linguistics, and statistic analysis. Providing an in-depth introduction to all research methods in linguistics, this is the ideal textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students encountering linguistic data for the first time.

About the Author:

Lia Litosseliti is a Senior Lecturer in Linguistics at City University, London. Her research interests are in the areas of gender and language, discourse analysis, and research methodologies.

Review:

"This is the ideal book for any research methods course in the area of sociolinguistics and discourse analysis. The coverage is extremely comprehensive - from how to write your research questions to how to collect, analyse and interpret your data - written in a very accessible style by well-established young scholars whose enthusiasm for their topics is infectious. With its captivating examples, and practical advice (including how to use basic statistical tests), it will prove a boon both to students and experienced researchers."
- Janet Holmes, Professor of Linguistics, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

"With its comprehensive coverage, this refreshing book provides a useful guide for doing research alongside thoughtful discussion of key research issues. As well as traditional qualitative and quantitative approaches, chapters cover corpus research, various forms of discourse analysis, narrative analysis, multimodal analysis, linguistic ethnography and much more. It will be essential reading for both beginning students and experienced researchers."
- David Barton, Professor of Language and Literacy, Lancaster University, UK

"An impressive collection that brings together a wide range of methods and analytical approaches in the study of language use. Chapters cover "the basics", including extensive illustration, while also exploring problems, controversies and debates within the field. A valuable resource for research students in linguistics."
- Joan Swann, Senior Lecturer and Director of the Centre for Language and Communications, Open University, UK

'Offers practical and theoretical advice and covers formal, computational, quantitative and qualitative research methods in detail.' (Times Higher Education Supplement)

... very well presented and the topics chosen are very relevant... Examples are provided in great detail and problems are worked out with detailed explanations, which go a long way in making many of the discussions quite lively and informative... The book is definitely going to be a useful tool to many researchers. (Sanford Lakoff)
