The present AILA Review volume contributes a collective, retrospective exploration of where the field of Applied Linguistics, as a research community, currently is, as well as a forward-looking analysis of which future avenues are to be explored in the research methods used in the domains of Sociolinguistics, the study of Language and Culture, Bilingualism and Multilingualism, and Second Language Acquisition. This collective, critical exploration of research methods provides convincing evidence of the theoretical and epistemological pluralism that characterizes the field, of the close association between theory and research methodology in Applied Linguistics work and, as a consequence, of the flexibility and innovativeness of the field in terms of expanding methodological approaches and crossing methodological boundaries.

Case Study Research in Applied Linguistics

Case Study Research in Applied Linguistics

Case studies of individual language learners are a valuable means of illustrating issues connected with learning, using, and in some cases, losing another language.

Case studies of individual language learners are a valuable means of illustrating issues connected with learning, using, and in some cases, losing another language. Yet, even though increasing numbers of graduate students and scholars conduct research using case studies or mix quantitative and qualitative methods, there are no dedicated applied linguistics research methods texts that guide one through the case study process. This book fills that gap. The volume provides an overview of case study methodology and examples of published case studies in applied linguistics, without attempting to be a comprehensive survey of the innumerable case studies that exist. The case studies presented here involve teachers and learners of English and various other languages in North America and other parts of the world. Advice is also given about how to conduct and publish case studies. Case Study Research in Applied Linguistics is designed for students, both undergraduate and graduate, as well as other scholars seeking to understand case study methods and their applications in research on language learners and language users in a variety of contexts. Applied linguists working in other subfields will find the volume useful in their own research and in their supervision and evaluation of others' case studies.
