Abstract:

Language acquisition research is challenging—the intricate behavioral and
cognitive foundations of speech are difficult to measure objectively. The
audible components of speech, however, are quantifiable and thus provide
crucial data. This practical guide synthesizes the authors’ decades of
experience into a comprehensive set of tools that will allow students and
early career researchers in the field to design and conduct rigorous studies
that produce reliable and valid speech data and interpretations.
The authors thoroughly review specific techniques for obtaining qualitative
and quantitative speech data, including how to tailor the testing environments
for optimal results. They explore observational tasks for collecting natural
speech and experimental tasks for eliciting specific types of speech. Language
comprehension tasks are also reviewed so researchers can study participants’
interpretations of speech and conceptualizations of grammar. Most tasks are
oriented towards children, but special considerations for infants are also
reviewed, as well as multilingual children.

Chapters also provide strategies for transcribing and coding raw speech data
into reliable data sets that can be scientifically analyzed. Furthermore, they
investigate the intricacies of interpretation so that researchers can make
empirically sound inferences from their data and avoid common pitfalls that
can lead to unscientific conclusions.
