Product description


“This book provides practical guidance for applied linguistic students doing SLA research. Each chapter, written by an expert in a subfield of second language acquisition (SLA), first presents a brief background review and theoretical frame-work of that area of research, then provides guide to the research methods and, finally, presents studies adopting the particular method to give readers a sense of practicality.”  (The Modern Language Journal, 21 November 2013)

“Each of the 15 chapters is comprehensive and accessible, and together they are bound to provide a thorough practical guide for students as they engage in various research projects. The volume will also prove to be a useful reference book for anyone teaching research methods in the context of SLA.”  (Studies in Second Language Acquisition, 20 May 2012)                   

“This volume ultimately deserves strong praise for its wide-ranging representation of current topics and procedures in SLA research. Although intended for students, it guides all scholars to a better understanding of how we study our field and is an important addition to the library of all SLA
researchers, novice or seasoned.”  (LINGUIST, 19 May 2012)


“With its cornucopia of information, both thorough and practical, this book is a must for our methodology shelves. Its study questions and project suggestions will be a boon for many research methods courses.” – Robert M. DeKeyser, University of Maryland

“This guide to collecting, coding and analyzing second language acquisition data will be an essential reference for novice and experienced researchers alike.” – Peter Robinson, Aoyama Gakuin University

“Comprehensive and technically up-to-date, yet accessible and cogent! This remarkable textbook is sure to become a premier choice for the research training of many future SLA generations.” – Lourdes Ortega, University of Hawaii

"Allison Mackey and Susan Gass' valuable new book offers hands-on methodological guidance from established experts on all kinds of second language research.” – Michael H. Long, University of Maryland
