Research Methods are important skills for students of linguistics to learn prior to undertaking research projects at either undergraduate or postgraduate level.

This comprehensive introduction to research methods in linguistics guides the student through these areas, offering advice at a theoretical and practical level. The book covers formal, computational, quantitative and qualitative research methods in detail, and each chapter is written by an academic renowned in the field. Topics covered include: using corpora, questionnaire design, computer-assisted content analysis, interview methods, observation, fieldwork in linguistics, and statistic analysis. Providing an in-depth introduction to all research methods in linguistics, this is the ideal textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students encountering linguistic data for the first time. "Research Methods in Linguistics" is a new series from Continuum providing a series of introductions to the quantitative and qualitative research methods needed by undergraduate and postgraduate students. The centre of the series is "Research Methods in Linguistics" edited by Lia Litosseliti, which provides a comprehensive overview of all the research methods needed by linguistics students.
