A Review of Brian Paltridge and Aek Phakiti’s Textbook Entitled “Research Methods in Applied Linguistics” Published by Bloomsbury Publishing



Department of English Language and Literature, Urmia University, Urmia, Iran


As mentioned clearly in the book, the intended audience is third-year (or above) undergraduate and postgraduate students (e.g. masters and doctoral students) in Applied Linguistics, TESOL and Second Language Studies. The book is correspondingly appropriate for experienced researchers wishing to develop their knowledge in research areas they are less familiar with. It is furthermore intended as a resource for research supervisors and educators to recommend to their students for information and advice on possible research designs and potential investigation subjects.
