Abstract:

Concepts such as dependability/generalization and inferences are dealt with
implicitly or explicitly in any research undertaken in applied linguistics.
This volume provides a well-balanced and cross-disciplinary perspective on
how researchers conceptualize inferences about learner acquisition and
performances as well as dependability and generalizability of findings. 

The book is a collection of chapters by prominent researchers in applied
linguistics, working in diverse domains such as vocabulary, syntax,
discourse analysis, SLA, and language testing. The goal of the book is to
bring attention to these issues, which underpin much of applied linguistics
research and to highlight what is considered good practice so as to
buttress confidence in the research claims made. 

The book represents current thinking on fundamental research concepts in
applied linguistics and can be used as a textbook in courses on research
methodology in applied linguistics. The book is also an excellent source of
in-depth analysis of research conceptualization for applied linguistics
researchers and graduate students.
