If you read only one book on the topic, it probably ought to be this one D rnyei seems to understand qualitative and quantitative methods equally well I like how he doesn t sway too much in the direction of either but gives them both equal play. A well written summary of the basic research related topics I apparently knew when I was writing my BA, but had managed to get lost in while fidgeting around the MA Also, I d like to publically express my agreement to the point that language in academic style should follow the principle of reader friendliness oh, the nice paragraphs of fancy academia is fancy that yield practically no useful information, as a bonus making you feel ridiculously illiterate So, there To all my linguistically talented Goodreads cake buddies. 2.5 This Is A Very Practical And Accessible Book That Offers A Comprehensive Overview Of Research Methodology In Applied Linguistics By Describing The Various Stages Of Qualitative And Quantitative Investigations, From Collecting The Data To Reporting The Results It Also Discusses Mixed Methods Research , That Is, The Various Combinations Of Qualitative And Quantitative Methodologies Excellent, highly reader friendly, understanding and useful for novice reseachers I just love his casual and direct writing style and feel so grateful for having run into this great book while doing my BA thesis Highly recommended and thank you Dornyei A great book that discuss three methodological approaches, I think this book will appropriate for Applied Linguistics, Modern Languages or any Art and Humanities disciplinary. This book provides an up to date and very useful overview of research methods in appled linguistics Highly recommended for anyone conducting research in the field. it is so nice Should have read this carefullywill probably buy it eventually.
